Kottke Launches Stellar

Jason Kottke has just launched a new endeavor, Stellar, which “helps you discover and keep track of your favorite things online.”

The site is gently rolling out to new users and it looks like a who’s who of content curators and internet movers and shakers have been trying it out in beta for him for a bit (Jason Kottke’s faves, Meg Hourihan’s faves, Dennis Crowley’s faves, Matt Haughey’s faves, Ainsley Drew’s faves, Heather Armstrong’s faves, Anil Dash’s faves, Andy Baio, etc.).

I’m still waiting my invitation, so I can’t honestly provide feedback about the service. However, just looking at some of those pages above will give you an idea of what it’s all about. It’s very much like a curation blog, with a steady stream of photos, videos, twitter updates, etc. It feels like the site fills the void between Facebook and Tumblr, allowing the liking and sharing of things without having to wax poetic about them. At the very least, this could be an immensely useful tool for bloggers who must fill content all the time and sometimes be at a loss of how to find new things.

“I’ve been playing with it for a while, and it’s great for surfacing interesting stuff,” explains Andy Baio. We’ll see. Hopefully, we’ll get to try it out soon!
