article imageBlog giant Technorati buys custom-news website Personal Bee

By RobotGod     Apr 12, 2007 in Internet
Blog search giant Technorati announced Thursday the purchase of custom-news website Personal Bee, to extend its reach in the blogosphere.
San Francisco-based Technorati, a leading site used to track and index blogs, will acquire Personal Bee's platform to let users tailor news pages to individual tastes and then get automated feedback.
"It is about enabling people to become 'curators,'" Technorati founder David Sifry told AFP.
Curators is a term for people who delight in being the first ones to pass on news. People will be able to use Technorati's search to find blogs, podcasts, images, video and lots of other material on the Internet and then use the Bee platform to present it the way they like.
Personal Bee has been around since September 2006 with a the goal of letting people create online newspapers from all manner of news and info.
Technorati-Bee websites will be free and operators will be able to arrange news pages based on their preferences and feedback from visitors.
It sounds pretty interesting, but with so many blogging related sites and tools will it really turn into anything? Yes. It just might.
If I am reading trends correctly, this has the potential to be very successful. Time will tell.
It certainly helps to level the media playing field. Anyone can publish and we can see even more varied views on our world.
I am a bit dissapointed that the article mentions some "other" sites, but not DJ. We are far superior after all.
