TechMeme Opens Archives

Popular blog news site TechMeme launched archives of its various technology, politics, baseball and celebrity gossip sites this morning. The new sites show a “river of news” display of news headlines over the previous five days. Founder Gabe Rivera told me earlier today that he also plans on including links to older archives as well in this format.

This is also an alternate view of the news. TechMeme ranks news items by popularity (determined by how many blogs link to a headline story), whereas the new river of news feature just lists headlines in reverse chronological order. This may be preferable to some users.

TechMeme and its sister sites still do not have any search feature, something we’ve repeatedly urged them to implement to assist in news research. Still, TechMeme remains a must-read site for blog junkies. Our previous coverage of the company is here.
