I was just alerted by a good friend that I have been included in the Alltop index of top sites on the Web. Wow, thank you! It’s a pretty incredible group of voices and I’m more than flattered to be included.

Introducing Guy Kawasaki’s latest startup, Alltop.

Like POPURLs, Alltop aggregates stories from “all the top” sites on the Web. They’ve grouped these collection into individual Alltop sites based on topics such as celebrity gossip, fashion, gaming, sports, politics, automobiles, and tech. At each Alltop site, the latest five stories are displayed from thirty or more sites on a single page, sort of like a custom-built RSS-feed page built on Netvibes.
Basically, Alltop site is a “dashboard” or “table of contents” for your favorite topics.

According to the site, “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 unveiling stories from sites that you didn’t know existed.”

Other voices include:

Fake Steve Jobs, Robert Scoble, Dave Winer, Guy Kawasaki, Seth Godin, Jeremiah Owyang, Teresa Valdez Klein, Jason Calacanis, Michael Arrington, Charlene Li, Tara Hunt, Doc Searls, Fred Wilson, Chris Brogan, Tim O’Reilly, Jason Kottke, John Gruber, Ze Frank, Chris Anderson, Marc Andreessen, Chris Messina, James Hong, Shel Israel, Jonathan Schwartz, Mark Cuban, Tom Peters, Marc Canter, Brian Oberkirch, Paul Kedrosky, Evan Williams, David Armano, Walt Mossberg, David Weinberger, and Nick Denton.

    It’s good to hear “humbled flattery.” Your coverage here on more than deserves the attention and listing on Alltop.
