This is where RSS aggregators help, and where K-collector, which is a topics-based RSS aggregator, can make the difference.
K-Collector is a server based RSS aggregator that automatically builds an onthology of posts organised by topics which are defined by the users. The topics as markers for points of interest around which K-Collector can cluster information. In particular it can be used to filter and categorize content coming via RSS from newspapers, magazines, web sites, weblogs, email, data bases and other sources.
Besides, being tightly connected to a weblogging environment, the K-collector aggregator allows an organisation to leverage the most powerful information filter available: ourselves. Each of us has developed the skill to quickly detect relevant knwoledge in the huge flow of information that we receive every day. By using weblogs and aggregators, each person can contribute by highlighting this knowledge and share it instantly with others.
This allow the organisation to be aware of the surrounding world and to take timely action when needed.
W4 k-collector would let me pick the concepts I want to follow, giving me a personalized news board.
It's easier just to experience W4 than to read a description of it.

Another cool thing: a Reverse Dictionary. Start with a definition, get a word.
