Reality Check: Popurls
Popurls is a site that aggregates feeds from the likes of Digg, del.icio.us, Reddit, Flickr, Stumbleupon, Slashdot, Google News, ifilm, BoingBoing, Fark, etc (see very partial list in picture). This enables you to see, on one page, what much of the Internet is buzzing about—think of it as an Internet “dashboard.”
There is a fair degree of customization: color scheme, story previews, type of feeds (media or text), quantity of articles from each feed, and the order of the feeds. Feed readers provide similar functionality, but in a less compact manner.
