Article-Recommendation Service? (View in Weblogs)

Summary
Is there a service that allows a group of people to post recommended articles? Google reader allows only one person to do this.

In the process of building the Reinventing Business project, I've realized there are far too many business articles for me to discover and filter on my own. I've started using Google Reader's "share" feature (and connecting it to the blog), but that doesn't seem to be something that can be expanded to include additions from multiple people.

I'm looking for something that multiple people can contribute to. Any recommendations? Thanks.

Once there was a company called findory whose idea was exactly what you want.
You can try using delicious to check the articles as well.

How about a shared account? It doesn't scale well (no way to add and remove group members except by changing the password), but it's a simple, low-tech solution.

Google Buz does this between friends and followers, so, the articles I share in Google reader are Buzzed to my followers, being possible for me to had tags and comments, which are also shareable.

A shared delicious.com account or reddit could also do the trick.

Nexus (http://tynerblain.com/nexus/) which is associated with Scott Sehlhorst's blog Tyner Blain is a platform for reading and discussion of articles and focused in the Product Management arena is a site which comes near to the model you asked for. There is a lot of content related with business analysis, marketing, business strategy, etc, so, it might be of interest to your new phase...

It certainly seems like something you could do with Delicious and its API. See Jon Udell's excellent Elmcity work using delicious tags to automate distributed event management:

Can you elaborate on your use case(s)? Reddit is open source as somebody pointed out. You can also create your own subreddit. Hacker News code is open as well (see my clone at http://talk.venturehacks.com)

I think reddit might let you set up your own private sub-reddit site.
