I've just downloaded the Guardian's 'newspoint' ticker which is mesmerically scrolling news headlines on my screen. I recommend it over the Google desktop sidebar as you can customise it so much more easily to show news you care about rather than endless US stock prices, which is what Google seems to deliver unrelentingly. Newpoint also acts as a syndication site which means you can keep an eye on the latest content from blogs and journals. I have been able to add the feed from this blog alongside that from the BMJ and the New Scientist. It feels good! The address of our feed is http://medhum.blogspot.com/atom.xml if anyone wants to do the same. When you've downloaded newspoint, click on 'Add content' and click on the bit that says you already know the address of the content you want to add.
