Guy Kawasaki, director of Garage Technology Ventures and founder of Truemors, has just launched Alltop, a collection of stories from top websites around the web, organized by topic on a single page. Alltop was inspired by the excellent single page aggregator popurls created by Thomas Marban.
We help you explore your passions by collecting stories from â€œall the topâ€ sites on the web. Weâ€™ve grouped these collectionsâ€”â€aggregationsâ€â€”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 pageâ€”we call this â€œsingle-page aggregation.â€
You can think of an Alltop site as a â€œdashboardâ€ or â€œtable of contentsâ€ for your favorite topic. To be clear, Alltop sites are starting pointsâ€”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 youâ€™re already visiting and unveiling stories from sites that you didnâ€™t know existed.
Laughing Squid is honored to be included in the “Oddities” category along with our friends from Fark. Another interesting category is the appropriately named “Egos”, featuring posts from some, but not all, of the top bloggers. Those who didn’t make the list will might have their egos hurt, but one thing is for sure, they will blog about it.
