New York Times Adds Techmeme Like News Aggregation Feature

. November 2, 2007 . 0 Comments

NYTimes.com has launched a new version of its technology section, which includes aggregation of news from around the Web.

NYTimes.com/Tech Editor Saul Hansell told Read/WriteWeb in an email that Blogrunner “is our answer to Techmeme, integrated with our main site. It is technology we’ve built ourselves, based on Blogrunner, a company we bought last year.” Further, Hansell said that “unlike Google News and Techmeme, we aren’t trying to prove machines can be better editors than people. We have a hybrid model, with Web Crawlers and Editors both helping find and ranks posts.”
