Newsvine November 10, 2005

Mike Davidson: Unstealth! Get Ready For Newsvine…

News, with commentary.  And, it sounds like, presence information for others reading the same news as you, with interaction options.  Sign-up for an account (“a column”), publish your own “stuff”.

Great URL process:

Simply save our “Seed Newsvine? button (a bookmarklet) to your browser and click it whenever you read a great story anywhere on the web. Tag it with words to describe it (e.g. “alex-rodriguez, baseball, world-series?) and a link to the original story, along with your comment, will automatically appear at the following pages:


… which brings me to one of my favorite features of Newsvine: our URL structure. Anytime you want news on any subject, say “supreme-court?, simply go to newsvine.com/supreme-court and every story we have that is tagged as such will be there.

Oh and we also have local news available at urls like “seattle.newsvine.com? and “newyork.newsvine.com?.

I’m looking forward to playing with this when it comes out.  Be interesting to see how the “anyone can comment” model works out – it won’t, hopefully, get flooded with garbage.
