When first i got to know RSS, at that point on, i have subscribed and unsubscribed, many sites that offers RSS.
The good thing about RSS is (in my opinion) that you got FED by the news, instead of you search for the news itself.
And people, are always NEWS hungry ;) no one i ever met, that doesn't interested in news, wether it's just a gossips, a rant, a stock market news, politics, sex, celebrity, everyone are lookin for news.
That makes it NEWS provider on the net, grows like a mushrooms :) there's a whole lot of variety on HOW the way they delivers the news to you ;) there's some who is community driven news, and some that break the news 1st and a whole lot more.
Lately there's been some improvement over on how to delivers news. My favourite one lately is BuzzFeed.
BuzzFeed distinguishes what is actually interesting from what is merely hyped. We only feature movies, music, fashion, ideas, technology, and culture that are on the rise and worth your time.
BuzzFeed works with some automated robot crawler, which they claimed that it can IDENTIFY new buzz that’s just starting to spread. PLUS they have some staff and editors in which they put up the buzz into more readable and interesting summary ;)
So this computer crawler combined with editors and feedbacks from the readers, makes it much more entertaining news to watch and read ;)
Another one that still on the Buzz trend is BuzzTracker.
A few days back, my bro Avatar post up a (soon to be) newcomer on the news thing. It was called the Scoopr. The concept is quite nice ! And i like the word SCOOP ;)
My first thought of the SCOOP is that, this Scoopr will covers story that considered to be the SCOOP (or the first) of the latest Buzz !
But apparently what they mean about SCOOP is that you can have the Buzz story to be Scoop as in save it.
So, it'll be very good if they can find the SCOOP of the latest Buzz ! Coz i'm always wondering who is the first one that got the SCOOP for let's say "THE HOTTEST NEWS RIGHT NOW!" It's always nice to found who broke the first news, and the others follow it ;) So, maybe they'll changed the way on how SCOOP will be :) coz... this Buzz thing, News thing, is already to much :P
Now as some closing thought, i found some nice articles here. And that shot me right through how i fell lately :P Lately i was fellin FED UP to much :P And since i've wrote so much, i won't discussed that article now :P But if you do have an opinion, they don't hesitate to share it here ;)
