From the creators of the OpenDirectory Project comes their new effort: a classifying news crawler : Topix.net. They've got some cool text processing that allows them to classify each story in terms of content and geographic location. Very cool ideas in agreggation!

Once it knows my ZIP code, why not pull top local stories to the front page? But generally, yeah, very cool.

As far as I know, Google News doesn't (yet) allow you to get news from a specific city or state, jon_kill.
