Recently, Guy Kawasaki, former Apple Evangelist, author, venture capitalist, Truemors creator, and Top 100 Technorati blogger, launched Alltop.com. What is Alltop.com? Here's how they describe themselves:
One of my favorite non-genealogy blogs was listed at Alltop.com and she was so honored and excited that I wandered over for a look. I'm a Mac user, so I knew all about Guy Kawasaki. I own his books for heaven's sake. The line-up was very impressive! But at that time they were missing a genealogy category.
We help you explore your passions by collecting stories about “all the topics” on the web. We’ve grouped these collections — “aggregations” — into individual Alltop sites based on topics such as environment, photography, science, Muslim, celebrity gossip, military, fashion, gaming, sports, politics, automobiles, and Macintosh. At each Alltop site, we display the headlines of the latest stories from dozens of sites and blogs.
You can think of an Alltop site as a “digital magazine rack” of the Internet. To be clear, Alltop sites are starting points—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 you’re already visiting and helping you discover sites that you didn’t know existed. In other words, our goal is the “cessation of Internet stagnation” by providing “aggregation without aggravation.”
Things are moving over at Alltop. They now include a category for genealogy. I am pleased and extremely honored to announce that footnoteMaven and Shades Of The Departed are listed in the Alltop.com digital genealogy magazine rack. Thank you Alltop.com, did I mention I'm so excited! Genealogy is now playing with the cool kids.
Go, take a look at the sites Alltop.com has included in their digital genealogy magazine rack. See anyone you know?
