Blackout

Blackout is a bookmarklet inspired by the art of Erasure:

"...a form of found poetry or found art created by erasing words from an existing text in prose or verse and framing the result on the page as a poem. The results can be allowed to stand in situ or they can be arranged into lines and/or stanzas." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Erasure_(artform)

This bookmarklet allows you to erase, blackout or redact words from any webpage to create new meaning. Creativity can struggle when facing a blank page. Erasure involves taking just the opposite approach: you begin with an already written piece and start removing words. The result often leads to novel combinations, otherwise challenging to hit upon.
