Keegy: Location-Based News Aggregator

Next Story

ArmchairGM: Sports Wiki and Community

keegyKeegy (CadaMinuto.com) is a new service which compiles RSS syndicated news on the Internet in real time and displaying and sorting it based on the location of its readers.

Keegy’s real power comes from the use of the robot spider “KeegyBot.” KeegyBot travels to known information sources (mainly blogs) and pulls information and news to display on the site. As users interact with the site, their activity anonymously generates statistics for each city/country. Using this information, an artificial intelligence algorithm ranks the posts for relevance according to a visitor’s location and the stories are updated every minute.

News stories pulled by KeegyBot are sorted into categories which are accessible via the top toolbar. All stories are also given tags for quick access. A tag cloud shows the most popular tags on Keegy. Similar to other news aggregators, you are reading the news on the actual sites providing the articles. After clicking on an article, a keegysmallframe remains at the top of the page so you can return to Keegy, but you are sent directly to the source of the information.

The site designed fairly well and is available in many languages. The search results seem relevant, and the tagging system actually works. If you are a news junky, give Keegy a shot.
