Hey nichodges -- I'd love a beta account for kindred.it. I've been seriously wanting something like that ever since I got a Kindle a few years ago and am completely amazed that what Amazon offers in terms of highlight management is so extremely poor. I'm also curious about the tech under it.

Me too - I did not realize the highlights or much of anything else was available through some sort of API.

Not sure if there is. I found the below page with some ideas -- a few people have written some scripts to basically scrape the content.


Yep unfortunately there's no public API supplied. There's a few different methods out there that I've had variable amounts of success with. Currently it's written using a lot of XPath.

I'll send out emails to all of the HNers who've signed up over the next few days. Thanks for the interest!
