Slate Launches ‘MySlate’

It’s easy to get bogged down with too much information when you spend all day online. You start out wanting to read about Greece’s new austerity measures and halfway through you check Twitter, find an article on the “alluring” dung beetle dance, and next thing you know you’re emailing your friends a beer ad featuring gyrating penguins.

Slate understands this process, and to help clear the online clutter it has launched “MySlate,” which is basically a personalized version of the site.

MySlate allows you to set up a custom layout featuring your favorite writers and sections on Slate. You’ll also be alerted to new content and comments, have access to a personalized newsletter and be able to save articles for later.

“We’re tremendously excited about the launch of MySlate,” said Julia Turner, Deputy Editor of Slate. “Giving our readers the option to read exactly the Slate they want — a Slate just for them — will lead to an even deeper kinship with our already loyal and fantastically dedicated readers.”

MySlate is a great idea to simplify browsing. You can get started on creating your custom layout here. Or you could keep reading Corin Nemec’s wiki page. Your choice.
