Topix

March 27, 2011

I found a very useful site called Topix that allows the user to type in their zip code and read news within their proximity.  The link I provided leads to news in the Orlando area.  The main page in my opinion is a little bland.  There are no graphics provided with the links under Recent Orlando News and Discussions. When the user scrolls down on the Orlando page, at the bottom there is a list and a link to Top Stories.  The stories are linked to a variety of news sources.  For example, the link for stories on Libya provides  a list   from news sources such as CBS and the LA Times.  I think the Topix site is good for narrowing down the news search based on a certain topic or region.  However, as far as the appearance of the site is concerned as far as the lack of graphics it may turn some users away.
