There have been services like this around for a while, such as ScraperWiki. I've worked with some of them.
Turns out the kind of people who typically want to easily and quickly scrape a lot of the web are also the kind of people who don't want to pay for the privilege.
Awesome idea and execution, though this probably violates most sites' TOSes, no?
uh. holy crap?
side note, the Quicksand font used all over the site is unintelligible on windows.
I love it!
That's possibly the coolest thing I've seen in years. What an idea.
