The Critical Thinker Can Now Be Found On Alltop - The Online Magazine Rack Of The Web

The Critical Thinker is now a part of the Alltop umbrella. According to Alltop, it's purpose is to help you answer the question, “What’s happening?” in “all the topics” that interest you. You may wonder how Alltop is different from a search engine. A search engine is good to answer a question like, “How many people live in China?” However, it has a much harder time answering the question, “What’s happening in China?” That’s the kind of question that we answer.

We do this by collecting the headlines of the latest stories from the best sites and blogs such as The Critical Thinker that cover a topic. We group these collections — “aggregations” — into individual web pages. Then we display the five most recent headlines of the information sources as well as their first paragraph. Our topics run from adoption to zoology with photography, food, science, religion, celebrities, fashion, gaming, sports, politics, automobiles, Macintosh, and hundreds of other subjects along the way.

You can think of Alltop as the “online magazine rack” of the web. We’ve subscribed to thousands of sources to provide “aggregation without aggravation.” To be clear, Alltop pages are starting points—they are not destinations per se. Ultimately, our goal is to enhance your online reading by displaying stories from sources such as The Critical Thinker that you’re already visiting plus helping you discover sources that you didn’t know existed.

The Critical Thinker is proud to be listed under the Alltop umbrella. Hear me live each Saturday at 6:00 a.m. ET on gobrave.org as the host of The Reading Circle and you are invited to follow on Twitter @thinkcritical01 and readingcircle01.
