Is the internet just too scattered for you? Would you like some way to collect all the things you’d like to read and watch into one place, but find yourself allergic to the acronym RSS? If so, Microsoft has just the thing for you – Introducing Montage, which Microsoft describes as

a flexible web-based service that makes it fun and easy to create and share a visual album of the web on the topics you care about.

Selling itself as a virtual scrapbook, the FUSE Labs creation adds content from multiple sources including YouTube, RSS feeds, social network sites like Twitter and Microsoft’s Bing search engine to create a dynamic page, designed by the user, based around a keyword search, which you can then publish as a web page and share with your social network contacts. It might just be the merging of Google and Tumblr, but I’m not sure I necessarily see a problem with that.
