About Alltop

Interested in well aggregated and usable content? Something Guy alerted me too, which looks pretty interesting, is AllTop. Of course, if you’re using Netvibes you may think differently… ;-)

_ About Alltop

We help you explore your passions by collecting stories from “all the top” sites on the web. We’ve grouped these collections—”aggregations”—into individual Alltop sites based on topics such as celebrity gossip, fashion, gaming, sports, politics, automobiles, and Macintosh. At each Alltop site, we display the latest five stories from thirty or more sites on a single page—we call this “single-page aggregation.”

You can think of an Alltop site as a “dashboard” or “table of contents” for your favorite topic. To be clear, Alltop sites are starting points—they are not destinations per se. The bottom line is that we are trying to enhance your online reading by both displaying stories from the sites that you’re already visiting and unveiling stories from sites that you didn’t know existed.

I’ve always liked the idea of aggregation, and think that it’s going to become more and more important because people will want to congragte around ideas and areas of interest as the internet and traditional search becomes too wide and not specific enough… Good luck to them!
