Theatrical Intelligence is Now Featured on Alltop
I am happy to announce that Theatrical Intelligence is now featured on the theatre page of Alltop, a highly rated aggregator of quality web content, sort of like the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval.
From Alltop’s statement of purpose, the company’s intent…
…is to help you answer the question, “What’s happening?” in “all the topics” that interest you. You may wonder how Alltop is different from a search engine. A search engine is good to answer a question like, “How many people live in China?” However, it has a much harder time answering the question, “What’s happening in China?” That’s the kind of question that we answer. We do this by collecting the headlines of the latest stories from the best sites and blogs that cover a topic. We group these collections — “aggregations” — into individual web pages. Then we display the five most recent headlines of the information sources as well as their first paragraph.
Our topics run from adoption to zoology… with [literally] hundreds of other subjects along the way. You can think of Alltop as the “online magazine rack” of the web. We’ve subscribed to thousands of sources to provide “aggregation without aggravation.” To be clear, Alltop pages are starting points—they are not destinations per se. Ultimately, our goal is to enhance your online reading by… helping you discover sources that you didn’t know existed.
To me, being on Alltop means that prior to the publication of my book-in-progress, the idea of Theatrical Intelligence will be introduced to new readers.
I don’t mind telling you that this makes me very happy.
