Computerworld's new Tech Dispenseris billing itself as a human powered technology blog network and news aggregator.
Tech Dispenser is different from the bot-run landscape of news aggregators because every site in their network is hand selected by real human beings and every piece of content that appears on techdispenser.com is categorized and prioritized by Computerworld's editors.
What appears to be a rather daunting task is a very good approach to add the human touch to a constantly growing network of relevant technology blogs representing some of the brightest and creative minds in technology.
Techdispenser.com filters these partners' content to bring you the best of the best the technology world has to offer.
If you have a technology blog and would like to join the network, apply now.

Today, I am en route up to Austin to take part in one more blogging conference, The Blogging Enterprise. Some of the same speakers I heard at Chris Shipley's BlogOn Conference in New York will be there as well.
I am going to have to leave a bit early so I can get back home to The Ranch in San Antonio for tonight's SATAI Stars of Innovation gala. Our client, Xilas Medical, will be recognized at this event and it will be good to have the technology community of our city coming together tonight to recognize up and coming companies such as Xilas.
My other blog, 826 Cambridge Oval is an on going story about my home that I had for sale. Good news! I closed on the sale yesterday. With this blog now behind me, watch for upcoming news about a new blog that I will be launching in January.
Today, I will be sharing the floor with a group of Blogging "experts" on the subject of blogging. BusinessWire's San Antonio office is hosting a luncheon for Marcom, PR and Advertising professionals to learn about this emerging communications medium.
I will be talking about why I blog, and how we are using blogging as a means of doing outreach to tech bloggers and journalists who can be a very valuable part of the communications food chain.
