20 Newsvine Invites Available

Newsvine is still an invite only social news site. I have 20 invites that have just been going to waste. If anyone is a news junkie like I am, this is the best news site out there. Email me at and i will send you an invite.

Here is what TechCruch had to say about Newsvine:

Newsvine will be a collaborative, social news site. Like other sites, Newsvine will show major news publications. However, readers can comment on news items, allowing for a discussion to ensue.

They are also adding tagging. Any user can bookmark a news piece (or any web page) with a tag such as “sports” or “Iraq” and it will become available at Newsvine under the URL[TAG]. If you are interested in seeing news on a given tag, you can of course go straight to that URL as well.

Newsvine will use a voting system, like Digg, to determine how relevant a given news item is. I think these user-determined ranking systems, like Digg and Memeorandum, are a great way to push good content to the top. I’m looking forward to seeing this live.

Mike Carmichael and his wife Glenda of Alexandria, Indiana have an interesting hobby. They add coats of paint to a baseball, and they have been doing so for 28-1/2 YEARS!!! They are up to 19,100 coats of paint, and have an ultimate goal of 20,000 coats.
