Ready for your next website addiction, info junkie? Alltop is a fun new site that features the top stories from a meta collection of top blogs and news sources. Unlike PopURLS or Trend Hunter’s NET BUZZ section, AllTop breaks out the net into 15 different categories.
The site, inspired by PopURLs, is the latest creation from our friend Guy Kawasaki (interview HERE).
It’s a great source for story ideas, and makes it easy to track down exactly what you’re looking for by category. It’s the ideal place to scout out new trends or simply what’s going on in your favourite industry or world of interests.
