Very good presentation – pitched news 2.0 nicely. Arjun put the ppt up if you can …

Also: Opinions, reactions and interesting stuff
Localization => Memetracker
cool Features like
side bars: ‘quotes’, people, places
‘RSS bottom machine’
Q. what are the sources?

Q. how is it listed?
– tags (automated not user generated)
– semantic aspects (not as advanced as nouns, verbs etc.)
search – e.g bird flu (insta mashup)
-> great google maps + news thing
(I think i have already seen this somewhere I think)

My Take: lovely and neat job.
Remember – he feels we i.e MyToday is a competitor.
I would like to say again – there is space for both of us and yeah we attacking two different markets. We are about news and views 🙂 Not just news … can be communities, cooking, deals anything!
