A site like 8tracks.com, which is like a customized online radio, is popular because songs are grouped according to genre, and are easily accessed all at one time, which is the underlying concept of ‘Readability’ Readlists.
Through Readlists.com , users can compile lists of their own articles, sorted by subject, and send them off, free, to devices like Kindles, iPhones and iPads. Much like making playlists or mix tapes, functionality of the end result is only half the fun of it—the process of actually making the list is equally as rewarding. You could potentially see lists of other people, perhaps your favorite writer or blogger, and dip into a bit of what they’re interesting in reading.
With the ‘list’ function being integrated across more platforms (not only 8tracks, but also Twitter), Readlists is an example of education evolving to become more virtual and interactive.
