Renaissance was the time of the fad for Universal Man. People like Da Vinci, master of many trades, were held to be the ideal knowing something about everything. Unfortunately, specialization of knowledge compartmentalized it into minuscule parts. Depth came at the cost of width. Specialization of knowledge generated a lot of knowledge. The modern world sat on top of an information overload which needed to be categorized within its proper domain. Topic Specific Directories stand uniquely poised to tap into a specific domain of knowledge and find relevant content easily and fast.
A Topic Specific Directory is any human indexed directory that lists content pertaining to any specific domain. More comprehensive, incisive and exact than the General Directories, the Topic Specific Directories provide information seekers with far accurate results than other avenues. Thus, if one were looking for investment related advice or information, one would do well to look into any investment or economics related Topic Specific Directory than a General Directory. Needless to say, Topic Specific Directories are coming up by the day, and gaining more popularity among domain-specific information seekers.
