I've been using The Latest for the past few days. It's a super lightweight feed of the 10 most trending/popular links shared on Twitter. Unlike similar services like Tame (http://tame.it/ cc @carmeldea) or Newsle (http://newsle.com), The Latest doesn't surface links from people you follow. At first this sounds like a negative but IMHO, this is what makes it valuable and unique, exposing things you wouldn't otherwise see in your feed. Serendipity, ftw. Protip: scroll to the bottom of the page, enable notifications, and leave the page open in your browser. Occasionally you will receive a browser notification when new links are added. They seem to have struck the right signal to noise balance.

Welcome, @Fimpen! Great work on the product. First off, as a big Anchorman fan, I must compliment you on the company name, Kinda Like a Big Deal. :) Why did you build The Latest?

We basically just needed a site that could help us find the most interesting links without all the work. Sometimes you just don't have time for Twitter or blogs. Most of all we built if for ourselves. But if other people like it as well, that’s awesome.

@Fimpen - smart. Build for yourself first. You were successful in getting press for The Latest and your previous projects. How do you approach this? Any specific strategies you can share for other founders?
