Are Recommended Reading Lists Worth Paying For?

Posted at 7:23AM Tuesday 28 Jan 2014

I've written before about the notion of a content concierge and I think we're getting closer to this becoming a viable model. Think of it as someone, probably closely aligned with an algorithm, that's constantly scanning the latest articles, blog posts, etc., on a given topic. They're reading everything and only recommending the very best so that you don't waste time on all the rest. The service is real-time, so the recommendations change throughout the day.
