Here's a handy Internet pipeline to tech industry news and sources designed for PR professionals. TechOmetr is a free aggregator of information and insights from tech blogs. When you head to techometr.com, you'll find a three-tabbed search window for Buzzing Topics, Prolific Bloggers, and Top Blogs. Information is handily packaged around the writers who provide it, enabling PR people to become familiar not only with news of the tools they're using, or tech haunts they want to pitch, but the bloggers who maintain the flow of such information.
TechOmetr looks like a great complement to PRFrame, a PR industry Firefox "news ticker" that we highlighted a month ago. It provides both Mac and PC news apparently even-handly. It strikes us that there won't be much excuse for not knowing what's what, and who's who, in the tech arena with TechOmetr, from Retrevo Labs, at hand.
