Newz in a bubble jungle

This is quite a fresh and funky way of news gathering. The bubble news feed has been introduced before on the Grocott’s Mail Website, and since has been further developed into its own entity by Vincent Maher.

Newzbubbles.com gathers most of the major South African news feeds renders them as bubbles and allows you to see which stories are the most popular.

It is a Web 2.0 application and will grow with feedback from its user base. It might seem strange to brows the news via bubbles, but they do give a clear indication, through the graphical representation, which stories are most popular.
