Zimbio - The People's Guide to the Web

I am trying out a new portal site called Zimbio and have checked out their 'Future of Blogs Portal' because of my particular interest in the subject. Zimbio is an interesting concept. You can start up your own topic (portal) or join in with an existing one, add links to your blog and share knowledge about any topic of interest. Whereas I have started to associate the name 'portal' with personal start page sites such as Protopage, Zimbia could be regarded as a 'community' portal. For the moment the site is in beta testing mode but if it takes off it could be a great resource for learning from others and sharing your knowledge.

Zimbo's description of the site:-
"Our network of public portals are designed to help people quickly get down the learning curve on any topic of interest by seeing what other people are reading, saying, and recommending about the topic. Public portals are interactive, dynamic websites that offer a range of features including group blogging, member photos, links to favorite websites, RSS headlines, tracking of search results, and discussion forums"
