NYT on Techmeme

July 21, 2010 at 2:53 pm Leave a comment

New York Times has done a nice write-up here on technology news aggregator Techmeme, the site which geeks and industry leaders flock to daily. As Techmeme evolves and introduces the human touch, alongside its traditional software algorithms, to collect news and blog posts the Times sees potential in this aggregation model more than just the tech sector.

Techmeme could become a model for other industries as a useful way to harness the increasingly unwieldy Web and arm readers who are preparing for business meetings or cocktail parties. Techmeme, a start-up company based in San Francisco, also publishes aggregation sites for politics, celebrity gossip and baseball, and hopes to expand to topics like business or energy.

Industry-specific aggregators like Techmeme provide focused, grouped news stories which can be essential for readers requiring a succinct digest of the main topics of the day. With aggregators often getting a bad press, it is refreshing to see the benefits they offer being discussed and encouraged not only for readers but for publishers too.
