There are enough bookmarklet apps out there to fill Lake Tahoe but very few of them manage to stir me into a modicum of interest. For some reason, though, I'm drawn to NextStories. I would guess its probably down to the constant stream of news that I would normally have to go and hunt out individually. The other thing, of course, is that it has introduced me to media that I wouldn't normally search out which is great. But its not just that. I really like the format of a constant stream of stories and it's very convenient to zoom in on the specific story that interests me....and then it leads me to another interesting place. NextStories is a bookmarklet that I'll actually use.
