Personalized News? Findory News Has Them
Robin Good points us to this resource, Findory, that cretaes a personalized online newspaper, providing a short description and link to a Findory page containing news reports about Findory (nice). "Findory uses a patent-pending method to order news articles gathered from a wide variety of sources. The algorithm combines statistical analysis of the article text and of users who viewed the articles with information about articles you previously viewed." It should be obvious, but I'll say it anyway: this sort of content distribution mechanism is a natural for education, and is exactly why I have spent so much time working on learning object repositories and related syndication systems.
