Another week, another new feature. These things are becoming so common now that you'd think we have some sort of redesign in the works. Hmmm, do we?
This week's new feature is something we call "Newsvine Live" and it's available via the Backyard (for now) and at live.newsvine.com as well. Newsvine Live is an (almost) live view into what's happening on Newsvine. You'll see new stories, new seeds, new comments, new votes, new comment votes, and perhaps a few more things there. Additionally, we've added the Newsvine Live Chat module in there in case you want to talk to people as you're camped out watching things fly by.
Newsvine Live will draw the inevitable comparisons to Digg Spy, and for the moment, those comparisons are fair. This is just a first crack and you'll hopefully be seeing it used in many other ways in the near future.
So kick around on Newsvine Live for a little while and let us know what you like about it and what you'd like to see in the future.
Incidentally, we're also quietly making visible the Newsvine Archive (also available via the Backyard). The Newsvine Archive is a comprehensive listing of all the articles and seeds published to Newsvine every day... updated every hour.
Both Newsvine Live and the Newsvine Archive are great ways to discover new content before it has a chance to hit the front page. By exposing new content in this manner, we hope to further tune the flow of information around the 'Vine.
