Are you a WordPress developer and a Burner at the same time? The new Burning Man website needs your help!

We need an extension that enables this:

1. We paste URL into dashboard somewhere
2. It grabs the page's Open Graph title, image, and description (or scrapes a best guess if there are no tags)
3. It converts that stuff into a linked list-style post in WordPress where clicking the title goes to that URL

Does it exist? Can you build it? The inventor of this technology will have their work implemented on the Burning Man website.

Email jon.mitchell@burningman.com if you can help!

This surprised me. I wonder why Google hasn't bothered to do this yet.

Probably, because you are more likely to buy if you are in the play store.

My new colleagues at +The Infinite Kind have an app question for you.
 
We're here! Err, that is, we're hanging out online at least some of the time now. Let's talk tech, especially if you want to talk about +SyncSpace or +Moneydance :)

Say, here's a question: What app do you use for brainstorming a new idea? If it's different for working solo vs. with other people, answer both.
