How to Insert Web Links Using Ubiquity and the Summon Command

I recently complained about the tedious labor involved in linking to stuff, such as the links within this article. So I created a ubiquity firefox (http://tinyurl.com/5m9lhb) command that allow you to get the link representing any text, and insert it into a web page. Install the command here. For example, if I wanted to point to the show Firefly (http://tinyurl.com/6g3zfj) , I only do one step:

1. Call ubiquity firefox (http://tinyurl.com/5m9lhb) using the ctl+space command (ctrl-alt for mac), then type summon text.

And that's it. When you press enter, the link for text is automatically inserted into the page you're viewing. You get a list of about 10 choices, choice #1 is inserted by default. If you want to choose another from the list, just type pick number after your input: e.g. summon bill clinton pick 3 will insert the 3rd link from the list of possible links to pages that represent Bill Clinton. The first item in the list is always the page returned from Google's I'm Feeling Lucky (http://tinyurl.com/6qs8fq) search.

This command is great for quickly inserting links into email (http://tinyurl.com/692yha) , blogs (http://tinyurl.com/56u7ys) , blog comments, etc. Optionally, you can just select some text in the page, and ubqi summon this to replace that text with the link.

It uses ubiquity firefox, sindice (http://tinyurl.com/4fabtc) to do the URI lookup, OpenLink (http://tinyurl.com/4dp9s2) data explorer to view the URI description, and Google (http://tinyurl.com/3gsc6g) for Feeling Lucky results, and delicious (http://tinyurl.com/4jguko) for bookmark search.

Nice to haves:
- search your personal dataspaces for links (delicious, etc)
- conditionally insert only title link (for Rich text editors like gmail) or title and parenthetical URL (for non-rich text editors like twitter)

Update: here is another insert link command, pretty cool stuff
