Anchorage Daily News – Human News Aggregator

Forget about parsing RSS feeds, etc.  The Anchorage Daily News has assigned David Hulen, reporter and editor to amass all the news an Alaskan (or Anchoragean) would want.  A similar experiment is underway in other locations as well.  Read about it at Etaoin Shrdlu.

My experience is that they’re right on the money – nothing beats a good editor parsing and assembling news.  Keep an eye on this one folks…it’s called Alaska Newsreader.
