I’ve had an invite for a new website that allows you to comment on recent news articles, provide links yourself or even write your own articles. It’s called Newsvine and it’s looking very promising. I’ve seeded a few news articles today to see how it all works. Unfortunately you need to have an account to read the contents at the moment.

It looks a bit like Digg in some aspects, in that people can comment on the news and the number of comments (or “diggs”) determine whereabouts it appears on any given page, but it also seems pretty well designed. I’ve been able to create an RSS-like feed in the sidebar – it’s actually created by Javascript and called JSS – so you can see what I’ve been seeding.

If you’d like an invite to this then please let me know and I’ll send one over to you. It does look like a promising site.
