From the source, newsle:
… finds articles about you, your friends and colleagues, and anyone else you care about and notifies you minutes or hours after they’re published.
I take pride in my network. I often gaze at so many of you thinking, ‘why didn’t I think of that‘ or ‘how cool is X?’
I take pride in building up my network too. As I often say, “I store my knowledge in my network.”
So, when one of you sent me an anonymous email notifying me of newsle, I was happy. (yes, newsle gives you the option of sending an anonymous or named email to your network once you sign up for the service)
Unbeknownst to some of you, I have Google Alerts set up to be notified of your digital footprint. It’s a great service that proactively informs me of your awesomeness. (yes, it’s a word)
Instead of Google Alerts, I now have newsle … which allows me to see a curated version — think of it as an RSS personal network feed on steroids — of your whereabouts and contributions in the quoted arena. Maybe it’s something you said at a conference, or you were interviewed, or you released a new whitepaper, etc. Whatever the case, I now have you tracked. You’re in my digital cross-hairs via one easy to use, simple and aggregated site.
Newsle … you made my week.
