That is the new web site run by my colleague Jerry Brito.  It ranks what is hot now on the web, drawing upon wonky articles and sources, no cat photos, etc.  I have found it very useful in the beta version.

Please ask Jerry to add an RSS feed.

This is interesting. I read the “about” but it does not explain how it limits it’s choices to English articles and American (I think) pundits. Is there some in-built filter for preselection?
I wonder what this beast would do if we let it loose in full freedom. Would it give us Chines and Indian pundits?

Well, I guess Krugman won’t be using it then.

Didn’t you read the part about it being Cowen’s colleague?

This is sure to raise the quality of the dialogue.

So it’s all dog photos, then?

All they care is that you care since “shares” is the metric for the content.

This is Marginal Revolution’s ‘interesting links’ all day, every day… to me at least.

Hey, why bother with original content or even interesting aggregation of anything but the most vanilla mainstream when your title is Technology Policy Program director.

Or possibly even coding, when you have a partner.

Another one of those linkfests which still maintain their magical status as the one secret tip that allows success.

I like the design and its nice and mobile ready. But it seems US-centric. Would be best if it had options i.e. What’s Hot internationally or in specific fields like Technology, Business etc

Blocked by filter at work. Categorized as pornography…

Great site, but the website name is pretty lame
