Beat power law through saved searches:

The problem is, “How can we find new, interesting, little-known content when we all read what everbody reads and points to?” Not only in the blogosphere, but even in applications like ITunes, where people tend to see what the majority sees, this is a problem. For example, the top 25 songs are listned to way more often than the others. The solution:Providing a way to store search results along with other links, like Top 25, will help overcome the power law. Giving easy access to stored search results can bring up some pretty interesting, little known information. Andy Edmonds writes how he uses feedster rss searches and aggregators to beat the power law. Also, I started my own feedster track, I previously used only google alert.
