Just came across a great new (2008) news site Stateside, and suprised I’ve never come across it before. Muckety does something newspapers cannot, which is provide a good extra dose of content to each article posted, whether on politics, the economy, business or media, or whatever else (US-centric) topic they’re covering.

The way they do this is through what we called ‘mind map’ or ‘spider diagrams’ in school- showing patterns of relationships, or if you’re feeling cynical, webs of influence, on the topic at hand. Click on the link above to see what I’m struggling to explain.  From what I’ve seen, it seems to be an effective use of adding value to news sites.
