An Alltop Aha! moment

Another case of not seeing beyond my non profit bubble.  Since it started I have been reading Alltop’s non profit agregator. It’s a great way to see the headlines of leading non profit bloggers.  Its much easier and more appealing than building my own RSS feeds on Bloglines, which I just haven’t been able to get into.

But what I did not realize is that Alltop is a feed agregator on more than 300 topics, not just non profits.  So I should also be reading the Women feed, and the social entrepreneur feed.

The feeds on  green blogs, start-ups, writing also look great!

Alltop was created by Guy Kawasaki, a longtime tech-business-guy and writer affiliated with Apple.   I had the aha! moment thanks to this article in Mediabistro:

Think of it as a digital magazine rack. If you went to a newsstand you would see racks of sports magazines, celebrity magazines, car magazines, wine magazines, and food magazines; we have our own virtual rack where we aggregate the Web sites and blogs of the top feeds for each of those topics, and we show the latest five headlines from each source. With Google, you ask Google questions like “How many people live in China,” with AllTop, you ask “How do I keep on top of what is happening in China?” So it’s a very different question.

Its one of these things that are so simple and useful that once you see it you wonder why it wasn’t created before.  So this means I have even more reading to do.
