Update: The shut down of Findory has been postponed. The website will remain active past November 1, 2007. More information when I can.
Findory will be shutting down on November 1, 2007. I posted the following on the site:
Thank you, Findory readers, for the last four years. I hope you not only found interesting news on Findory you otherwise would have missed, but also, just by using Findory, took pleasure in helping others find news they might enjoy.Please also see my earlier post, "Findory rides into the sunset".
Sadly, all good things must come to an end. On November 1, 2007, Findory will be shutting down.
It was a wonderful experiment building Findory. Information personalization is in our future.
Some day, online newspapers will focus on your interests, building you your own unique, customized front page of news. Some day, search engines will learn from what you do to help you find what you need. Some day, your computer will adapt to your needs to help with the task at hand. Some day, information overload will be tamed.
But not today. Findory will be shutting down on November 1. The website will no longer carry news, blogs, videos, podcasts, or favorites. The daily e-mails will cease. To ease the transition for users of Findory Inline and the Findory API, empty feeds will be served for a couple weeks into November.
I am sorry to see Findory go. Though it will not be Findory doing so, I continue to believe that the future will be personalized.
