Recall way back when the internet first began? Back when web portals were popular (and incredibly effective) – mainly because the general public did not know what was available in the interwebs.

Now with the era of information overload firmly weighing us down, the question is: Do we need to go back to the concept of “portals”, where information is curated and pushed back to us in neat little consumable morsels? Think of Pinterest… it’s an aggregation tool for cool stuff to ogle, think of Twitter, it’s also an aggregation tool for cool stuff to read. Even Facebook groups our friends together.
