Newsvine

Well I toasted my website (*sigh*) and while I wait for someone to go in an apply the fire extinguisher to my web server I'm doing other things, like reading my email.

Reading my email takes a while because it's so distracting. For example, I've spent the last hour or so lingering over my beta invite to Newsvine, a citizen journalism website that looks like it has some legs.

Anyhow, here is the first article I wrote for the service, a throw-away about predictions in the Canadian election. I'm pretty impressed with the service, and if they can manage to display articles fairly (my new item did not appear on the front page for some reason, only on 'world') the adevrtising revenue portends a second career.

OK, maybe not. But I like dreaming that it does.
