Great article! There is a wealth of information on the web and we need products that are optimized for real-time updates tailored to users specific interests on a continuous basis. One such discovery engine is YourVersion (http://YourVersion.com). They offer the best ability to discover tailored content based on my interests and allow bookmarking & sharing through Facebook, email and Twitter. I am a big fan of their free mobile apps (iPad, iPhone and Android) and browser tools (Firefox, Chrome and Safari) which I use to bookmark and share as I browse the web. Check them out: http://yourversion.com

They can have a dangerous influence on uninformed people.
They don't impress me one way or the other.
