To keep track of all the Linsanity, Wall Street Journal reporter and programmer Jeremy Singer-Vine created a one-stop Internet shop for the Web's best Jeremy Lin related offerings: Linstapaper. Borrowing both its concept and name from the über-popular app, Instapaper, Linstapaper aggregates interesting reads about the Knicks sensation and enables readers to "save for later," allowing offline readability. Perfect for some J-Lin catch-up, especially for those, who have thus far sat out this Linsanity craze, like Instapaper founder Marco Arment. "I honestly had to look him up on Wikipedia when I first saw Linstapaper to know what the big deal was," Ament told The Atlantic Wire. "But the fact that Linstapaper exists is, to me, a great honor."
Wow—In the few hours since linstapaper.com launched, it's had visitors from 30+ countries, including Sri Lanka and Saudi Arabia.— Jeremy Singer-Vine (@jsvine) February 20, 2012
Talk about Linstant success.
