ENTREPRENEUR Shane Greenup of Engadine spent the best part of 12 months convinced his latest idea was available already.
After searching the internet and realising that no one had his idea, he dedicated his time to creating it.
That is how he came up with rbutr, a browser plugin that informs people whenever the page they are reading has been disputed elsewhere on the net.
In other words, it provides an opposing opinion to any information on the web.
‘‘At the moment, the web is passive and we’re trying to make it more educational — to get people to critically analyse what they’re reading,’’ he said.
‘‘I hope to literally change the way the internet works. It is not so different to what Google does and I can see it being something in the longer run it will find interesting.’’
