    Tagmask is a new aggregator in the vein of Reddit aimed at programmers, but with a tag-based approach to filtering.

    Instead of subscribing to wide content categories that provide a fairly cumbersome approach to information filtering, Tagmask determines your feed based on the tags you provide so that every piece you see is highly relevant.

    The most common approach to using Tagmask is to include tags for the languages you develop in, although it works well with non-language specific topics such as algorithms, social or real-time web.

    Certainly worth checking out if you’re looking for a new way to curb your programming-related information overload.
