Top 10 Sources, a human-edited blog index, announced a management team today.
Halley Suitt is CEO, Wendy Koslow is Editor in Chief and Indigo Tabor is Technical Editor in Chief.
From the site:
Top 10 Sources is a directory of sites that bring you the freshest, most relevant content on the Web. We know it’s impossible for anyone to keep track of the 20 million+ online sources of information. So our editors search Web 2.0 — blogs, podcasts, wikis, news sites, and every kind of syndicated sources online — by hand. Our Top 10 lists are updated frequently as great new sources come online.
The service has been heavily criticized by Mike Rundle and Om Malik (and subsequently defended by Dave Winer and John Palfrey) for copying blog posts. Adam Green argues both sides (see comments below for his further thoughts).
MY opinion: Top 10 Sources properly attributes and links to the original blog content, and they allow blogs to opt out. No problem.
And it is an excellent site for finding news. Combine this with Memeorandum’s or Tailrank’s ability to group conversations and we’ve got a real winner.
