The Traffic Driver: Gabe Rivera

Rivera's Techmeme has fast become the tech news source of record by aggregating the top industry news from more than 1,000 blogs and mainstream media sources in one convenient location. Unlike Digg and other community edited sites, the ad-supported site is entirely automated. Rivera tweaks the algorithms, but the prominence of stories is all based on links and blog buzz, among other things. Last year the site launched a "leader board" to show the news sources that most frequently have their stories posted on the site.
