And Now for Something Completely Different...

There's an interesting new way of looking at the news these days at www.newsisfree.com. This site is a news portal, currently collecting news from 12439 sources at the time of this posting. I don't know how they do it, but I'm pretty sure it's automated! You can read their own explanation at http://www.newsisfree.com/about.php .

But the eye-popping feature is the News Map feature that lets you see, in customizable graphic form, the various news articles from different sources. As you move your mouse over the boxes, it gives you more information on the article and lets you jump to it if you chose. While I think the interface could be improved, it's a very unique way to browse the news to clip for mobile reading!

I wonder if newsisfree is actually allowed to scrape news from other pages in form of RSS feeds...

scraping

yes we are - it's considered "fair use" under digital copyright millenium act (and also in the EU). we're actually doing this for 6 years by now
