Press Releases

I have an idea: a browser plug in that measures the similarity between a page on a news site and a known press release. I doubt that it would have to be very sophisticated: my ol’ favourite TF-IDF algorithm could generate the keywords and compare them to a database of known press releases. Give the page a score from 1 (a verbatim copy of the press release) to 5 (an original article).

[I promise to make a nice post about Google Wave on Monday.]
