-[node.io](http://node.io/) is a data scraping and processing framework for [Node.js](http://nodejs.org/)
+[node.io](http://node.io/) is a distributed data scraping and processing framework
-## Why node.io?
-
-- Create modular and extendable jobs for scraping and processing data
- Jobs are written in Javascript or Coffeescript and run in Node.js - jobs are concise, asynchronous and _FAST_
- Includes a robust framework for scraping, selecting and traversing data from the web
- Includes support for a variety of proxies
- Includes a data validation and sanitization framework
-- Easily handle a variety of input output situations - node.io does the heavy lifting
- * Reading / writing lines to and from files
- * Reading / writing rows to and from a database
- * Traversing files in a directory
- * STDIN / STDOUT / streams / continuous IO
- * Piping data to other processes or node.io jobs
- * Any combination of the above, or write your own IO
+- Easily handle a variety of input / output - files, databases, streams, stdin/stdout, etc.
+- Speed up execution by distributing work across multiple processes and (soon) other servers
- Provides support for retries, timeouts, dynamically adding input, etc.
- Manage & run jobs through a web interface
- Run encrypted jobs made with [packnode](https://github.com/chriso/packnode)
-- Speed up execution by distributing work across multiple processes and (soon) other servers
