We would like to welcome our new friends to Paper.li and thank them for contributing. This morning the Paper.li presses had already published over 2000 new Daily’s in Japanese! However, the work to get to this point started long before yesterday.
Before new countries come online, the magic behind Paper.li needs to take place; the semantic analysis of 1000s of user links and their content (images, video, and text) in the new language. This is required to contextually classify the links so that we can publish them in a meaningful way for the user to read.
Launching the service in Japanese is the first language for 2011 and we plan to continue to roll out more languages throughout the year.
Welcome, and good publishing!
