Giuseppe Mauriello reports: "Squirro creates a living collection of content that’s updated continuously and automatically in a simple, elegant digest that can be shared with colleagues and friends.

 

More specific than search and broader than feeds, Squirro scans multiple sources to find the most relevant information on topics of interest and includes tools to clip, save and share."

 

From the official website: "Squirro is your personal digital research assistant. Squirro curates the most relevant content from multiple sources and delivers it in a living collection you can really harvest and share. Squirro filters out the noise to give you the content that matters most."

 

Right now Squirro is open only to invitations.

Just signed up for the beta invite, looks interesting, hope it don't take 2 months to get it (LOL). Let us know what you think.

Looks like a nice idea ... However, signing up for the beta with an email address is fine. Then they want you to spam your contacts before you even get a chance to see how it works.

Then an email follow up which states the following "The more of your friends sign up, the higher you jump in the waiting list queue"

#fail ... but thanks for sharing

Digitalassetman I fully share your frustration. :-) Ridicolous ways of marketing a service.
