Kwout? Kwhat? What a stupid name. They should provide a pronunciation key. I’m pronouncing it K-what. Maybe I’m supposed to pronounce it K-wa-out. Err…maybe it’s Q-U-O-T-E.

In case you’ve missed the point of K-W-OUT, mouse over the image above. You’ll notice the screen shot provides working links by creating an image map that provides click-able links of the page’s hyperlinked text and images. I think it’s cool.
What’s the business model? Got me. I would dig it if Jing did this for me and posted it to Flickr though. Now that would be an interesting challenge and it might even be a useful tool and service.
