I just wanted to share <> with you all. It presents a simple interface that converts any reasonable web page into Markdown. It can be useful for, say, quoting an excerpt in one’s own writing, or (as it was for me just now) converting a blog post I wrote elsewhere into Markdown format for use on my own blog. Delightfully, it seems to use the Readability API to remove all the non-content cruft from the source page before proceeding with Markdownification.

(This tool was referenced once before on this list, as far as I can tell, by Sherwood, in a somewhat off-topic 2012 thread wherein the poster sought a way to turn a webpage into an email.)
