Regator is a next-generation blog aggregator and startup based in Decatur. It's the creation of a team lead by Scott Lockhart, Chris Turner and Kimberly Turner. It's currently in beta.
Regator aims to make it fun and easy to find the best blog content, no matter how tech savvy you are—or aren’t. Regator combines editorial selectivity, semantic algorithms, and user input to create a powerful, yet simple experience. Unlike many existing blog aggregators, Regator has a distinctive Ajax-based interface that improves usability and speed.

Scott writes: We are going into private beta with nearly 3,000 hand-selected blogs [including inDECATUR] from the roughly 60 million out there , organized into more than 300 channels. Regator is already aggregating as many as 9,000 of the best blog posts a day.
Here are some articles written about Regator in the past week:
SPECIAL INVITATION TO inDECATUR READERS
Regator is offering 50 private beta memberships to inDECATUR readers who know to enter "indecatur" as the invitation code.
To take a look at Regator, go to www.regator.com and get access to the Regator Private Beta by filling in your username and email details and using the invite code: indecatur in the form in the middle of the screen.
Toi see blog posts about Greater Atlanta, select (in the left sidebar) Local Interest > United States > Atlanta.
If you logged in using the username and password posted here earlier (which is for this blogger only), please stop using that and apply for your own username and password (using the invite code "indecatur"), so the developers can track single user usage. Thanks.
It's not surprising that companies developing aggregators would adopt gators as their logo/mascot. It's a natural. But Afrigator wondered if Regator "borrowed" its idea (but didn't seem too upset about it). Read a review of Afrigator, if interested. The two teams have since talked, and have smoked the peace pipe.
