Thanks again for skyping into the conference, doing the video, and creating the map! I learned a lot and so did the 300 ngos in the room. And, I've been slowly playing with the tools on this list and now really adore trap.it!
Coleman Foley's comment, February 16, 2012 3:19 PM
Xydo is still a discovery engine, but is now focused on discovering content for email marketers. The rest of the list seems to be more focused on general purpose news discovery.
From their new home page:

"Easily find white-hot content that’s relevant to your business and customers."

Quickly create beautiful, white-labeled emails optimized for web, email, and mobile.

Track every action: opens, clicks, shares, etc. — down to an individual subscriber."
