Let's say you've read through all of your news sites of the day - CNN, NY Times, etc. You come on over to theMET and check out what's shakin in this neighborhood. Then you look around, decide no one is looking, and check out People.com and Perez. You feel a little guilty but that's ok...you've had a hard day at work and you deserve this time for yourself.
But then where do you look?
I wrote a post a little while back about this wonderful man named Guy Kawasaki. In that post I mentioned Alltop but I didn't really give you much detail about it.
Think of Alltop like an online magazine rack. Basically it aggregates all of the best "magazines" (i.e. websites), lists the top five most recent stories in that site, updates it every 10 minutes and then neatly categorizes those sites into separate sections. So if you were to go to a bookstore - and you wanted to just look at Tech magazines or Design magazines...you'd have it all in one neat, tidy place. And it's not just your standard categories - Alltop has some very specific subcategories as well.
