Check out Map of the News (was catching up on my feeds and found this via Andy Lark's blog).  Although I've only been playing with it for a few minutes, I already think it is fantastic.  For full effect, maximise your browser.  If I could get an RSS reader to display my feeds in a similar way (different colours for different categories, the larger the headline the more 'dugg' the story…) keeping up to date with what's important would be a breeze – or at least more of a breeze than it is at the moment (a gust, perhaps?).

Also, its name reminds me of The Day Today, which can only be a good thing.  Anyway, my first impressions of Map of the News are such that I'm considering making it my homepage – which probably says more about Google's current travails more than anything else I could type on the matter…  But that topic will have to wait for a separate post.

Time to crack open the gin 'n juice…  TechCrunch has had a scoop snoop at the next iteration of Digg, which will be unveiled on Monday (evening UK time).  Needless to say, the screenshots look superfly and I look forward to giving it a try, erm, G.
