Reviews.com is pleased to announce that Computing Reviews has been discussed in E-Content Magazine. E-Content, the premier publication for the digital content industry, identifies and profiles emerging trends and resources. Written by David Meerman Scott, the article, "Looking Beyond Search," focuses on how science and technology services facilitate browsing and thereby encourage serendipity, bringing their users to new and useful places.
Scott points out that services with scholarly content can learn from mainstream Internet services, such as Google and Amazon, how to bring their customers to unexpected but pertinent information. He finds that Computing Reviews "takes serendipity to a new level," because "they know how to make you stumble upon something useful." Regarding Hot Topics, Computing Reviews' series of essays on emerging trends in computer science, Scott notes that "this approach makes editorially important content simple to find and easy to use and understand."
