Some Resources for Newshounds (and online researchers)

UPDATED - 12/06/04: remembered to add an old favorite for tracking down online sources. Originally designed for rooting out spammers...see SamSpade for Windows below.

UPDATED - 11/29/04: added several resources including a few new Google-related tools. At some point (soon?!), I hope to revise it in a categorized fashion.

Some Resources for Newshounds -

Thought I'd put together a few resources I use for keeping track of issues. No particular order besides grouping pages having the same root URL. NameBase is an excellent resource for discerning relationships among names of people or organizations in the news and I've included the page for an excellent directory of topics. National Security Archives is a great resource for government-source documents related to particular policies and events.

I also included a special section on neoCONs: I recommend all Americans explore the PNAC site well beyond the link I provided.

These are only some of the more useful resources I have discovered and are obviously in addition to the familiar Yahoo News and Google Headlines facilities. If you've any others, please post. TIA.

SamSpade Network Tools: they provide a downloadable application for Windows.x that permits you to do many of the tasks needed to identify and track spammers. But for those who don't have Windows, fortunate you, SamSpade provides an online query interface for doing similar networking related investigation.

NewsNow - Headline Tracker that updates each 5 minutes. Useful for tracking their canned topics or non-paying customers can enter a single-word string search.
