Quite a bit of my time each day is spent reviewing news articles and posting the most useful ones to newslog, often with a bit of commentary. In all humility, I think newslog is perhaps the best single source of interesting news on the web, in terms of getting a wide scope of topics and viewpoints, selected for quality, and intermixed with particularly insightful pieces as they come along. Several of you regularly send me articles that you find particularly useful, and that enriches the mix considerably.
Newslog does provide a service to the 200 subscribers, but my real reason for doing it is so that I can keep up on developments, and have a handy log of the items I’ve found useful. In order to sail the ‘sea of understanding’ you need both a keel and a sail. The keel is an understanding of history; the sail is attentiveness to the latest developments.
When I set up newslog, I didn’t realize that people would want to subscribe. My intention was that people could go to the website when convenient, look over the latest headlines, and look at the articles that are interesting to them. The archives are maintained in three different places:
The yahoo and google versions both have good search features. You can put in ‘bailout’, ‘afghanistan’, or whatever, and it finds the articles that contain the phrase, back through the years.
FYI, below are the headlines for the most recent articles.
