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 sm4llphry@gmail.com 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 newsvine.com/[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.
