MSNBC visual newsreader

Check out MSNBC.com’s visual newsreader. Super simple interface to choose the news categories you want to view and fun to explore the results in a 3D space. I would use it as a screensaver vs replacing my news reader… but I like it. (Via ThreeMinds )

ABOUT THE AUTHOR(S)

User Profile

Howard Mann is the founder of Brickyard Partners, a business strategy agency based in Portland, OR. Prior to founding Brickyard Partners in 2001, Mann owned a premier international logistics company with over 140 Million in revenue, six U.S. offices and a global network of over 40 agents worldwide.

As that business came under severe pressure from the previous economic downturn and industry consolidation, Howard lead the company out from those treacherous times by returning to the basics that make every business great and completing 6 acquisitions that re-imagined the business so it was highly attractive to buyers. Finding that “secret sauce” did not come easily but has fueled his purpose to help other business leaders to never have to go through what he endured. 

Through real world experience and those hard times in the “trenches” of business he has learned that it is not following the latest fad, copying competitors or adding complexity that makes a business truly great. His pragmatic approach and knowing what it feels like to sit in the CEO/Owner chair is what makes his work so different and effective.

In addition to his strategy, marketing and communications work, Mann coaches a select group of entrepreneurs, CEO's and business owners. His highly focused workshops and keynotes help executive teams take aggressive action to unlock the true potential of their organizations and build remarkable businesses that endure. In good times and bad. Online and off.

Howard is a sought after speaker both in the U.S. and around the world. He writes frequently on his blog about the importance of the basics and reconnecting to the passion that too often gets lost as businesses mature.

This is ‘fun’ to play with, but has zero substance. You can’t even select a headline out of the pre-arranged order.

A complete waste of time. I went there, added the “channels” I wanted to read. And then it just got stuck, buffering, minutes pass – next!!

Not a very easy way to read the news. It maybe slick, but they are not focusing on the usability of the task at hand, reading the news.
