Mining U.K. News Coverage: A Great New Site

Check out Newspapers 2.0: OPML file for British newspaper RSS feeds at Martin Belam’s CurryBetDotNet for a fantastic way to aggregate and search news. As the BBC’s Robin Hamman explains:

Want to know what every major UK newspaper website and blogger had to say about the Taliban’s renewed efforts to attack Kabul? Simply keyword search the feeds for Kabul and you’ll find every single mention from every single UK newspaper website or blog – instantly and right there inside your RSS reader.

Let’s hope someone copies this idea, pronto, for U.S. media. Meanwhile, major kudos to Belam.
