My Google News View

How sad is it that I notice that the World Series is starting because of an Ask Jeeves logo? That’s the danger of personalized news–you get a great view of the bark on the trees, but you can lose the forest.

But if you want to look at the bark on my trees, click this link to see how I’ve personalized Google News. I’ve got sections for Google, Yahoo, MSN, Ask Jeeves, plus a section for Search Engine Optimization.

Although for the SEO section, I had to add “-mets -jae” to the query; evidently there’s some baseball pitcher with the name “Seo.” Baseball again, geez; when will people learn that basketball and maybe soccer are where the action is? πŸ™‚

    Harith, I hope that some of the data will be visible at one data center within a day or so. It may turn out to be a European data center, but I’m not sure yet. When I know it’s visible to some degree outside of the plex, I’ll post.
