The real breakthrough in terms of digitally available content on the internet was syndication and the syndication standards that followed. The RSS standard was the major winner in this space and a sleuth of RSS readers (i.e. Google Reader) followed suit but they all suffer the same problem. They force you to seek out, collect and organize your feeds. Who really has the time for that? Some readers (or portals) provided master list of feeds but they usually contained a bunch of stuff you weren't interested in ... and many were never updated to reflect dead links or blogs.
Content is KING -- but you need to give it to the user in an effective, convenient and organized fashion and this is why we created our iHub line of applications. We have "content owners" that intelligently seek out, group and organize our content along with servers that constantly refresh and rebuild our composite feeds.
