LeapTag – New web-content discovery tool

LeapTagCame across this interesting tool which is still in private beta meaning that it is not available openly for download from their website. But you can leave your email at LeapTag.com so that you could be notified when it is available.

What is LeapTag?
LeapTag is a Web-content discovery tool from Yoriwa, Inc. that uses tagging to enable people to find Websites, news and blogs that match their individual interests in complete privacy. LeapTag allows you to define the things you’re interested in using tagging. For each interest you create a tag for, LeapTag will produce results that include news and blogs, websites and books. Even the ads you see will be relevant to your interest. Users vote on the resulting content suggestions, which trains LeapTag to recognize the information considered the most relevant to the user.

How does it work?
LeapTag runs in your browser tool bar. As you travel the Internet you simply tag pages to associate web content with your interests. It enables LeapTag to create a contextual definition of your interests. When LeapTag returns your results, you further refine your definition by voting positively or negatively on the items you see. This effectively says to LeapTag I like this, bring me more results like this or I don’t like this, don’t bring me anymore like that. This tagging/voting cycle teaches LeapTag and the more you use the tool the better and more relevant your results will become. Tags can be shared by groups of people with mutual interests.

In a way, LeapTag seems to be a mashup of Stumbleupon, Google Alerts, NetVibes, Digg and the likes. Would love to try it out when I get to lay my hands on it.
