Topix Marks the Spot

Knight Ridder, Tribune and Gannett have taken a controlling interest in news aggregator Topix.net. This is an interesting move.

I’ve always thought that newspapers should have been the first players to get into the news aggregation business. Why shouldn’t my newspaper of tomorrow (online, rss feeds, customized) be at the same URL as my newspaper of yesterday?


Concentration is important!
