<nettime> Keeping track of online news... for non-profit organisations


A Free Software friend of mine Subramanya Sastry <sastry {AT} cs.wisc.edu>
has created this superb tool (called NewsRack) that allows you to
electronically track news published on certain subjects (of your
choice). You can set up the keywords, and it will keep track of the
news. Check up how it works for "Goa", the former Portuguese colony on
the west coast of India, where I live and work:
http://floss.sarai.net/newsrack/Browse.do?owner=fredericknoronha&issue=goa&catID=1

It's meant primarily for non-profit organisations, and you could try
it out too. Sarai.net in New Delhi has a server that allows you to
create "alerts" for themes of your choice.
