The End of Findory

23 Nov

One of the most interesting blog / news sites has sadly shut its doors.  I will miss your randomly personalized goodness findory.   Good luck to Greg and his team in whatever they do next.

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.

Sadly, all good things must come to an end. As of November 22, 2007, Findory has shut 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 has shut down. 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.

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.

– Greg Linden, Founder, Findory.com
