I am not sure what it looks like to the rest of the world, what with the license fee and all, but the BBC site, I think, has the best front page of any news organisation (well, it's more than that, but that is the focus of the website)

Greg,

Good article. However, I didnt see any references to Loomia/Aggregate Knowledge. I have often clicked on Loomia reccomended links at WSJ (i.e. the box on the right which says- "People Who Read this Also read"

I think the Loomia approach is pretty cool and a good balance between complete personalization and reading what the "editor" thinks is important versus what the crowd thinks is important

You're assuming that news organisations are interested in making the reading experience quick and efficient. Wrong. New organisations are there to serve their *advertisers* who gain most when the readers become distracted and click on more pages.

Great article in Spectrum on just how difficult it is to personalize a news site.

It's almost the opposite of the challenge that reporters and editors have in writing a story for their particular audience. For example, three NBC operations, CNBC, MSNBC, and NBC all cover an event from three different angles. This makes it especially important for a recommendation engine to analyze the body of all three stories to make the best recommendation.

I'm still hopeful that personalized news will be adopted more. It would be good for readers and for advertisers who understand the value of one-to-one marketing.
