Jason Kottke Launches Stellar Bookmarking Site

Jason Kottke, the blogger and Web designer, today launched a site called Stellar to help people discover and keep track of favorite Web content, such as tweets, Flickr photos and YouTube videos.

Stellar does not seem to be a huge departure from the bookmarking site Delicious or the reblogging site Tumblr, but it’s pretty and easy to scan. Kottke said in a blog post that “a few dozen” people have tried the service, and he will let more in “reeeeally sloooowly.”

Regardless of the rough draftiness of it all, Kottke’s popularity as a blogger means invites will be much coveted.

Stellar shows each user’s “faves” in reverse chronological order, as well as who else has liked the content. It also does the inverse: Showing which of that user’s content has been liked by other users. You can see what it looks like on Kottke’s own page here.
