Bottlenose is an application that will convert Twitter into a personalized dashboard and newspaper. "The Bottlenose name was inspired by the dolphin, which is reflected in its primary feature known as Sonar – a visual representation of your online conversation." To be sure, more and more people are using such services to aggregated the news - as Brian Kelly says, who needs Rupert Murdoch? On the other hand, it's better to get some perspective and comment on your forwarded link (as in this newsletter), isn't it? "it has been suggested that 'Twitter, like blogging, needs an edge, a voice, a riskiness'" - that's my feeling, and why the automated systems I think will in the end prove less than satisfactory.
