I get invited to a good beta (Newsvine)

Guess I won’t be need­ing that shirt — today I got an invit­ed to the pri­vate beta of Newsvine.

In the words of Mike David­son (pre­vi­ous­ly known for his work on sIFR, now of Newsvine): 

We believe in turn­ing news into con­ver­sa­tion, and every page on is designed to do pre­cise­ly that.”
Haven’t had the time to actu­al­ly give it a try, but here’s a screen­shot of this morn­ing’s world news home page.

Beet­je jam­mer dat ze het alleen niet voor elka­ar kri­j­gen de juiste reis­in­for­matie op de scher­men te kri­j­gen.

After see­ing sev­er­al of his great graph­ic nov­els1 being turned into crap­py Hol­ly­wood movies; will Alan Moore final­ly be hon­ored with a prop­er sil­ver screen adap­ta­tion? One of my favorite comics of all time, V for Vendet­ta, is being trans­lat­ed to a movie at the moment. The accom­pa­ny­ing site has made me quite hopeful…
