Yesterday Guy Kawasaki announced Alltop. An excellent idea! Instead of painfully building iGoogle or NetVibes pages, you have access to of-the-shelf best of breed pages making you wonder why you would use a generic news aggregator again.
Since Mr. Kawasaki was pretty proud to say that he had Alltop site designed for a mere $10K (where did I find this info? I’m sure I’ve read it somewhere …) I took the challenge of designing an entire (ahem) "blog" start-up in about half a day and at absolutely no cost .
So a start-up = problem + solution, right? Here we go:
Tomorrow when you’ll tell your colleague that you’ve seen this fantastic news, he will ask skeptically “Really? And where did you get that from?”. So you will go to Alltop, get to your specialized page and you will search franticly among some 30 or 50 feeds (ouch) and you might just find … nothing. The news my friend, is elusive. By definition, it doesn’t last. So as a last resort you will go on Google and 3 hours later you will have the result proudly standing on the 235th result page.
Now, you will never have to find for the source again. In addition, you will be able to focus even more on the very specific news you are interested in. Please meet TopMoRE
