Don't miss all the Geeky Goodness!

We made Alltop!

Alltop, all the top stories

Now, here’s what that means.

Theatre Geeks is now featured on the theatre page of Alltop, a highly rated aggregator of quality web content.  Apparently, our podcast was interesting enough for the Alltop folks to put us on their arts/theatre page.  Check it out here.

Here’s some additional info about Alltop from their statement of purpose:

The purpose of Alltop 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 zoologywith photographyfoodsciencereligioncelebritiesfashiongamingsportspoliticsautomobilesMacintosh, and 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 displaying stories from sources that you’re already visiting plus helping you discover sources that you didn’t know existed.

Being on Alltop is not recognition or a “prize,” although we’re glad to get it.  But what it really means is that our show will be introduced to a much larger potential audience.
