A TechDiscuss Article
First it was an idea, now it is a reality. We are happy to let you know that we are fulfilling the promise we made on 6th May when we went live. TechNews is finally here
Today, we are happy to announce the Beta Version of TechNews, a free news aggregator provided and operated by technigeria.com.ng, selecting most up-to-date information from the numerous number of technology publications by an automatic aggregation algorithm.
The service will cover technology news, articles and stories appearing within the past 30 days on various websites and blogs. In earnest, we have started building our list of publishers and technology blogs.
A sample showing current stories on techcabal.com and technologytimesng.com as of the time of this report
Our front page provides roughly the first 200 characters of the article and a link to its larger content. Websites may or may not require a subscription; However, if you wish that we aggregate content from your technology blog or sites, you can kindly forward the following information to
- Your Website/Blog name
- Website/Blog url
- Website/Blog Technology news feed url
- A contact email
TechNews provides the choice of sorting the results by date and time of publishing of articles on the publishers site but randomly sorts the blog selections. This means that the blog with the latest publication appears top. However further improvements and continuing development is on to serve our prospective users better.
Users can request for e-mail “alerts” on various technology blogs by subscribing to TechNews Alerts. E-mails are sent to subscribers whenever news articles are clustered from the blogs and sites they have subscribed for. Alerts are also available via RSS and Atom feeds.
However, in future, we plan to let users combine stories from different blogs into a personalized page, and also allow subscription via SMS.
On a good note, TechNews gives us the space to push all our previous and forthcoming publications to TechDiscuss.
