I have to say I think you underestimate the value of push technology,
especially in regard to personally tailored information. It's push
technology that allows me to be able to peruse those 300 sources for the
information I need in a reasonable amount of time. While I think your
product has a value of it's own I don't think you should compare
yourself with push.
Speaking with personal bias, it is push technology that enables me to
keep abreast of things. The filters keep out the garbage I don't need
and then the centralized pages of headlines allow me to get what I need
quickly. I am always looking at new push products and discussing with
them our participation as a content provider. I believe this is the way
we are headed and I'm embracing it as much as I can.
