Topix – more news, and local news

Topix is a new news aggregator, like Google News but it has the ability it dig down to local news. If you live in the USA you can enter your location and find news from your area! It even has news from Ireland too, although I only recognised 2 or 3 of the headlines. Most of the news that’s making headlines at home isn’t represented, but hopefully it’ll improve. One major problem of course is the fact that Irish newspapers don’t provide free access to their archives which is unfortunate. (That’s not a criticism, it’s an observation, the “free lunch” of the Internet is over!)
