The Writings on the Stall

google news

Google is definitely my favorite web entity. I have mentioned this before. But I have more support for my bias now.

Within the past couple days the site has become what I believe to be a web portal. Before, Google had many of the features of web portals (a search engine, a web directory, and usenet groups) but has lacked in one aspect: news. This isn't to say they haven't had a news page. They have. It was just buried (and no longer isn't). You can now get at it at their home page.

What's really cool about Google News is that it is organized "entirely by computer algorithms without human editors." Amazing.

Advancement is what I love most about technology. Keep up the good work Google.
