There has been a tremendous amount of buzz in the blogosphere recently with the advent of a number of meme aggregator products that are similar to Gabe Rivera's memeorandum. Aggregator sites monitoring the Internet are a hot product idea which has left us with lots of options when looking for the latest blog posts and news.
The latest to surface in my own referring link metrics reports have been Megite and TailRank but there are others that were just identified by Michael Arrington on TechCrunch. Mike lists the following aggregators:
- Newroo (pre-launch)
- Technorati Kitchen
- Tinfinger (pre-launch)
Mike admits in his post he still likes memeorandum the best. I still need to check a few more of the new options out for little bit longer period of time to make a judgment. Topix.net is a huge player and have made some excellent strategic moves in the space as of late by redesigning the site, adding blogs and user comments. Technorati has also released Technorati Kitchen which is highlights the most popular recent stories in specific niche areas. Megrite appears to be memeorandum but offers additional niche areas other than just Technology and Politics.
With a crowded aggregator field, that appears to be multiplying, I think their is room for more than one option, I just wonder at what point you consider the field saturated with options.
