Newsvine has the potential to become awesome. It is, to paraphrase rhodri (who gave me my invite) a ridiculously comprehensive news feed with a dash of bloggery and editorialising. I have twenty invites, mail me at mrwombat AT gmail dot com if you want one.

Link there seems a bit off.

Secondly, I find it a bit bizarre and somehow offputting that it doesn't have anything other than a login screen. Not even a privacy statement for the sign up screen.

Ah, fixed that. I forgot that LJ decides that a lack of http:// means it is obviously not an absolute URL.

Anyway

Prompts me to log in or signup :-)

Ah, throw an invite my way anyway. Their complete lack of useful information to those not already signed up has sparked my curiosity.

Not exactly an inspired move on their part. They're lovely, its just a shame they make you take a leap of faith to find out.

Is this Irish-based or more widespread? Oh heck, sign me up anyway, please!
