Slate rethinks aggregation (again) with a Slatest redesign » Nieman Journalism Lab » Pushing to the Future of Journalism.

a rethink of Slatest already? I still miss Today’s Papers. As much as I like Slatest also, I really hope it won’t become too much like other news aggregation sites. Slate has one of the most unique voices on the Internet, something which I would hate to see be lost. I’m happy to see them continue to innovate though, they are one of the few online magazines really pushing the envelope in their attempts to rethink news.

On the topic of news aggregation, I also have to give a shout-out to myself and the others at SPACE magazine back in 1999, where we did have a Media Recycling section, where we put a meta filter on what the other (monthly) magazines were writing about at the time.
