A recently launched
service that allows users to extract data from any website into XML, and transform or build applications and mashups with that data. Described by it's creators
as a way to, "easily build an API for any website... through a visual and intuitive process". Plagiarism Today, meanwhile, has cause for concern
, "Dapper is a scraper. Nothing more... now the technologically impaired can scrape content from any site... the potential danger [is] very, very real".
