Generally speaking , i'm looking for the tools needed to create a site like Topix. Seems like their just a huge aggregation site....taking short excerpts from news links/sites, (first paragraph ) and making it into their own url's..
My initial thoughts are the resources required are pretty hefty, since it seems to scan most news publishing sites. I'd like to create something more small scale (at-least initially) for just a single state or 2. But across most topics. (sports , entertainment , news , etc)
