interesting Wired article on Instapaper and the Kindle
Has anyone tried it?

Yes, I've been using it for months. I have the Instapaper app on my iPod Touch, which means that if I come across an interesing article, I can flag it in my browser, then read it on my Touch, even when I don't have an Internet connection. It's great for collecting snippets to read on the bus, for example.

Also supports ePub downloads, so not just for Kindle or iPhone/iPod Touch.
I also haven't yet used Instapaper, but plan to. For my Sony Reader I've been using
For my Palm OS, I've been using Plucker, but maybe Instapaper will replace it--I'm pretty sure Instapaper's Kindle format will be readable by Mobipocket on the Palm.
Thanks for linking the article. Interesting that they manage to auto-load the Kindle with Instapaper content using a Mac. I'll be looking for Windows macro programs that can also do the automation.

I've been using Instapaper on my DX for a few months, and love it.

Very cool! I've created an account and added the bookmarks. The perfect complement to Calibre and it's newsfeeds.

I used Instapaper on my DX for a while, and it worked pretty well, but I spent a lot of time just getting my articles clipped and onto my Kindle. Plus, every day I had to individually delete the previous day's articles. I finally decided it wasn't worth the overhead. Now, I just read all that stuff directly on my iPad.

Kindle Web Clipping
I would disagree with the last post. The most annoying thing about reading on the web is the glare from the screen. Thats what the Kindle solved for me. I used instapaper but it make me download the AZW file which was almost as much hassle as cutting and pasting it myself. I switch to clipDO.com when I saw then launch on eBookReader.
There are things I would change about it but at least the delivery is instant (or near instant)
