A guide to personalized news sites

Mark Glaser at PBS MediaShift posts about websites that try to make "the perfect news page with everything you want to know."

While Mark says that "no one site has totally perfected it quite yet", his post is a guide to many sites that are trying. He includes reviews of My Yahoo, Google Personalized News, Topix.net, Netvibes, Gixo, and Findory.

Mark is right that the idea of a "Daily Me", a newspaper personalized to your tastes, has been around for more than a decade. Yet all these years later, we are still striving to make the technology meet the vision.
