Not too long ago Dave Winer came out with a new service for parsing what was hot and fresh in the political news stream and called it NewsJunk. Well it turns out that he wasn’t satisfied with just serving up political stuff as he also had a bitch about how tech related product release news was being passed over by the other major aggregating services. So this morning we were introduced to the TechJunk version [nw] of NewsJunk; which sported the same plain jane user interface.
Now I might not be the biggest Dave Winer fan out there but I will say that this project of his could very well fill a need for news junkies like myself. With its simple see everything new at a glance look TechJunk can sit quietly in the background updating with the newest product related news that is happening out there. While I do wish it had an auto refresh I will probably be having it as another of my permanently open browser tabs in FeedDemon along with FriendFeed.
Good job Dave.
