The “About” page at TechDispenser describes the network this way:
Computerworld’s human powered technology blog network and news aggregator. Tech Dispenser is different from the bot-run landscape of news aggregators because every site in our 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.
It certainly beats having my content scraped by a bot hands down. I’m hoping it will bring some more traffic this way. Backup is not the sexiest of topics, and I’m not in any danger of becoming an A-list blogger whose popularity generates massive bandwidth bills. But I do want to get the word out to people before they lose their data.
