The New Year’s Resolution Simplifier

by Liz Colville

The Resolution Simplifier is an elegant little website that allows you to whittle down your 2011 resolutions to their manageable, obtainable essence. For example, I put in “To eat less cheese,” which I’m not even really interested in trying to do, and it came back, “Watch Food, Inc.” Smart! I suppose. Then things got strange. “Stop reading celebrity news” yielded “Name something that rhymes with news.” Maybe Resolution Simplisticifier should resolve to stop being so lazy! But seriously this is a lot more fun than Google’s Ngrams. [Via]
