DoodleBuzz – typographic news explorer

doodlebuzz

DoodleBuzz is a new take on displaying news articles from around the internets. Choose a news item you wish to search for and make a squiggle to display relevant articles. You can then drag out the more interesting articles, explore them in detail, see where else they link to or click through to the story itself. Words don’t really do DoodleBuzz justice so go and have a play, it’s very cool and a great way to discover new angles on stories in the news.

Does the web really need yet another news aggregator? In many ways the answer to this question is undoubtedly no. But DoodleBuzz was born out of an idea to create an entirely new way of exploring information – one that allows for a kind of “quiet chaos” that gives people the opportunity to explore unthought of paths and connections along their news gathering journey. You may start at Iraq but end up finishing on Britney, whilst taking in The Catholic Church, Global Warming and 50 Cent.
