Storify: Just another social media content aggregator?

Web surfing has always been a great way of ending up in a new place you didn't expect to be in.  I started here:

1. Why a JavaScript hater thinks everyone needs to learn JavaScript in the next year

which led me to here:

2. Express

which finally led me to here:

3. Storify

This is a pretty nerdy path, I admit, but I am interested in how programming technologies such as Javascript - that have been around for a while, and have not always been looked so favourably on - now seem to be more central to the development of the web, and HTML5.

Anyway, I ended up at Storify which is a kind of social media story aggregating tool.  Why the heck would one need one of those?  I am not sure at the moment but it was extremely intuitive to use and I couldn't resist giving it a spin around the block.  Here's an embed from my first try out:
