Every day we face an information overflow; data is coming at us through so many channels that it is difficult to weed out the gems that are important to us from all the noise. For those who are not social media mavens, the whole problem can be intimidating.
Project Emporia offers a solution to this. It sifts through ever-evolving news streams to identify hot news stories, categorizes them into topic areas and ranks them, and then presents them to you in a friendly and easy-to-use UI. With Project Emporia you get relevant stories on topics of your choice.

Your votes will improve the relevance of your news story choices not just for you, but for every other user as well.
Project Emporia is a release from Microsoft Research FUSE Labs. It gives users a way to tap the pulse of the Internet. Please follow @projectemporia on Twitter to find out the latest information.
