I think that SciencePORT is a directory/search site of RSS feeds in the sciences. It is hard to tell since the “About” link is just a bunch of links to RSS aggregator downloads. Well it does have “bugs” on the logo and a BETA stamp. Nuff said.
But they have a directory structure that lists feeds, and for each they pull top 5 headlines. Lora is sad that there are no Geology feeds, though she knows of a few.
Talk about a serendipitic web? I was scanning The Shifted Librarian’s blog as I had commented there last week and was curious about any follow-up (sigh, this is a problem of following “conversations” among blogs). Anyhow, there was a person named “Olaf” who provided the SciencePORT URL. Click. I was there.
I’ve said it to others, but if you rely only on the results of a Google search, you are missing most of the web. That is just the first foray. Numerous times I have found the best stuff 1-2 links off of the top results, when I explore what other people link to.
