Storyful. Microsoft Introduces Montage, a Magazine-Like, Topic-Based Web App. At LeWeb yesterday, Microsoft demonstrated a pretty, new way to curate the web's information: Montage.
Montage looks and feels a lot like a glossy magazine web or tablet app. It works by allowing the user to pick a keyword or two; the application then pulls data and content from a variety of media-rich and real-time sources, including YouTube, RSS feeds, Twitter and Bing News. The content is then arranged on the page in a grid format — you get to choose the exact layout — for your own consumption and for sharing with others. For example, we used the term "Christmas trees" to create a Montage of our own.
