Farewell, infoglut

Memigo calls itself an “intelligent news agent.”

It lets you register, rate articles, etc., etc., and—in theory, anyway—it gives you news you want to read. And not all that other crap.

The idea is, once you register it adapts to your preferences (in part thanks to your rating of articles), siphoning news out of the madhouse that is internet news and presenting it to you in a more orderly fashion. It’s more complex than that, and there are also other things you can do (like select peers whose article recommendations immediately show up on your front page), but I think it’s an intriguing concept, hence my mentioning it.

Mosey on over if you’re curious.
