I was fed up with visiting 10 websites to research a product or stay current on the tech trends I am interested in… every day. Not only that, but many of websites write stories on the same topics – and there is no way to compare their relative quality.

Tech Limelight, a new breed of social media news website, launches their beta today. Over a year in development, Tech Limelight was built in response to the increasingly fragmented internet landscape. Today, consumers need to visit multiple websites just to get enough information to make a well informed purchasing decision. Tech enthusiasts must stay current on many micro blogs in order to follow the trends on the topics they are interested in.
Tech Limelight aims to solve this fragmentation problem, offering a simple but powerful system that aggregates many types of information from around the web onto single topic pages. Users on Tech Limelight create pages around important tech topics and contribute wiki content, news stories, reviews, pros and cons, specifications, and more all in a collaborative environment. All of this information is ratable by the community, which allows users to quickly find the most popular and interesting information. Users can also follow other users and topics to receive a custom feed of the news stories they are interested in.
In order to encourage participation and the submission of quality content, Tech Limelight introduces a revenue distribution system. As the scores of content a user contributes change, so does that users account score. The most popular users on Tech Limelight receive a portion of the websites revenue through a sophisticated distribution system.
Founder and CEO Marc MacLeod states, “I was fed up with visiting 10 websites to research a product or stay current on the tech trends I am interested in… every day. Not only that, but many of websites write stories on the same topics – and there is no way to compare their relative quality.” Tech Limelight aims to aggregate, concentrate, and assign quality values to information on the internet. The beta launch today is one exciting milestone of many to come.
