Google lets you subscribe to Danny Sullivan's favorites
Ever wondered what the 'big names' in the industry are reading? And would you like to read what they are reading? Well, Google is now giving you this opportunity, well kind of.
If the 'power users' are actual literally 'power users' is doubtfull, its more like they are well known users. And it's not as if you 'following' their shared results, the blogs and websites they suggest are hand picked by them.
Still, its very interesting to see what some of the 'famous names' suggest. Google has four categories in which suggestions are made: News, Tech and web, Food and health and Trends and fashion. In the "Tech and web"- section Danny Sullivan is the power user when it comes to search. He is accompanied by big names like Chris Anderson (Wired), Adam Pash (Lifehacker), Mark Frauenfelder (Boing Boing), Alex Papadimoulis (The Daily WTF), Jason Kottke (Kottke.org) and Annalee Newitz (science/scifi blog io9.com).
In other sections we can find people like Arianna Huffington (Editor-in-Chief, The Huffington Post), Abby Gardner (Editor, Fashionista) and no less than eight New York Times columnists.
As for the suggested links: yes there are some beauties to be found, but not surprisingly every 'power user' starts off by suggesting his or her own site. So another interesting thing is: how can we get on that list? ;)
