Alltop

Awesome site for keeping up with, well, everything in an efficient way. Alltop is basically a one-stop shop of content drawn from both typical and not-so-typical sources that is categorized by subject and updates every ten minutes. "To use the service, simply click on which industry interests you and then drag your mouse over the lists of blogs/articles. A shadow box will appear containing the first paragraph of the blog or article. If it seems relevent, click on the link to go to the corresponding website. You can expect dozens of sources for nearly any industry with dozens more blogs and articles to help you frame your campaign." __________ From the site: Purpose We help you explore your passions by collecting stories about “all the topics” on the web. We’ve grouped these collections — “aggregations” — into individual Alltop sites based on topics such as environment, photography, science, Muslim, celebrity gossip, military, fashion, gaming, sports, politics, automobiles, and Macintosh. At each Alltop site, we display the headlines of the latest stories from dozens of sites and blogs. You can think of an Alltop site as a “digital magazine rack” of the Internet. 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 helping you discover sites that you didn’t know existed. In other words, our goal is the “cessation of Internet stagnation” by providing “aggregation without aggravation.” Q. How do the Alltop sites work? A. We import the stories of the top news websites and blogs for any given topic and display the headlines of the five most recent stories (except Moms.alltop which has fewer headlines because there are so many feeds). When you place the cursor over a headline, we display part of the story so that you can decide if you’d like to read it. To read the story, click on its title. To go to the home page of the site, click on its domain name. Q. How often do you update the feeds? A. Approximately every ten minutes.
