MakeUseOf is a technology and internet apps blog founded by Aibek Esengulov and Kaly Mochoev. The website's primary focus is software, web applications, and technology, but they have also recently started covering news, opinion, and gadgets as well.[5] MakeUseOf was launched in 2007.[6] They have been noted for being a high supporter of Net Neutrality.[7]

Background[edit]

Aibek Esengulov stated that the idea for MakeUseOf came about because "the biggest problem with the web was the lack of sources where users, like myself, could learn about other useful websites".[8][9]
