Thank you for hunting us, @jason! The props mean a lot coming from somebody who’s reported and curated (and made!) as much news as you have.

Being (tech) news junkies ourselves (we’re an app studio,, by day), we’ve been mulling how to keep tabs on important stories and projects while burning fewer cycles doing so and I think we managed to tune this extension’s algorithm for triggering notifications pretty well in our testing. More importantly, though, what do you all think?!

Edit: You don’t have to wait the two hours and change between notifications after you’ve installed Top to start sampling the notifications. We’ve also been piping Top’s notifications into Facebook,, and Twitter,, where you can sample a couple week’s worth of historical notifications in one fell swoop.

@rememberlenny Untrue! I really dislike BiCapitalization. The name is Rocketship. ;-) I linked to our website, which has more info about us, above.

@oldestlivingboy @jason What do you mean its untrue? Its on the website.

@rememberlenny Before you edited your comment, you’d written “RocketShip” instead of “Rocketship”. My reply was a joke about capitalization (a rich source of material for many comedians).

@jason : how do you think that this compares to your Launch Ticker ( ) project?

from what I can see, people like me, who don't like constant interruptions (e.g. I turn off email notifications on my phone) would be better suited with using Launch Ticker, which sends you twice daily summaries of similar content to what is proposed here. Whilst people who want realtime updates of breaking news would be better suited using this. - Is that a fair analysis?

@_jacksmith Jack, one of the makers here. Yup, spot on analysis!

@_jacksmith Bingo, I don't need a stream of "alerts" unless its a real alert. Launch Ticker is good for me on the updates (plus the notes from @jason always liven it up). When I need news, I go looking for it,
