Streamy, A New Digg, IM, Netvibes, Customized News Thingy

There isn’t much out there about new startup Streamyyet, other than the screencast above, a TechCrunch Forums post and writeups from a couple of blogs. It’s a social news site, with customized pages for each user and the ability to add friends and share links/stories.

It is well designed, has lots of intelligent features, and is almost sure to drop into obscurity immediately after launch. Lots of casualties in the customized news space (see paragraph 3 here).

Thanks for the tip, Orli.
