Don’t have time to read an entire WikiPedia entry? You should then try something that quickly summaries Wikipedia articles. WikiSummarizer is your answer because it automatically summarizes Wikipedia articles. The result is a summary that presents the most important points of the original text.
WikiSummarizer reminds me a game we played in improv acting called Half Life. In the game, you would start out with 4 minutes to tell a story. Then you would do it again with only 2 minutes. Then tell it in 1 minute. Then tell the story in 30 seconds. Then tell the story again in 15 seconds.
