This is interesting. I didn’t know much at all about Google’s tie up with the New York Times and the Washington Post, but apparently this little Living Stories project is going open source, which means all types of online publishers could be picking it up.

Don’t know where I’ve been to have missed it (not reading the Times or Post enough, I guess), but it looks pretty damn useful for tracking a story. I’ve become a real Google News user in the last few years – make that every day.

And while I’m not aware of many non-news/non-media people using it too much, it’s a great tool of the trade, for even casual news-observers. Think the same might become of Living Stories – just another part of a big Google finger in the news pie.
