What’s new: The World news tab.
I started with the international feeds from major news outlets such as the ABC from Australia, Ria Novosti from Russia, Al Jazeera, Ha’aretz, The Hindu, NYT international feed, etc.
Then I asked people who read the site for other feeds. English-language. Covers news for their geography, as well as world news, but not be too focused on the United States. We already have lots of American news in other tabs. It was a community project which was wonderful, that’s why we have such a rich set of feeds, and such an interesting tab.
Lots of other stuff in the pipe, as well as a tab for the US election, as it heats up.
Keep the cards and letters coming and keep spreading the word. Especially people who work at news organizations and bloggers. I want them all to do rivers for their communities. They don’t have to be as fancy as this one. And we can help. It’s important to have these streams running all over the web, not just on Twitter and Facebook.
