I'm not going to make a huge deal about this, but River2, my river-of-news aggregator, turned 1.0 yesterday.
To celebrate, I also did a new release of the OPML Editor, the environment that River2 runs in.
Who would find this interesting: news organizations and journalism schools. Operating a river is a way to automate news gathering in your sphere of interest, your community. And for J-schools, it's a way to give your students a head start on the news system of the future, which will surely operate in this fashion. Imho of course.
It's available for Mac and Windows. The Mac version is a universal binary, no more need to run Rosetta. The Windows version runs nicely in EC2 for Poets, which means you can operate a river in the cloud if you want.
Support is available on the River2 mail list.
If you're an old-time Frontier user wondering what this is all about, we made a site just for you that explains!
