Reinventing the News, Cheezburger style

WIRED
The Cheezburger Network’s Ben Huh is tired of the way news is being reported. He doesn’t think that it’s necessary to have 1800 versions of the exact same story, partly because many other worthwhile, less “sexy” stories get lost under heaps of hype over a single massive story. Huh is a doer, not a dreamer, however, and is setting out to create a new app that changes the way that people view news on mobile devices. The product he’s creating is called Circa, and it isn’t just another aggregator; the new app will make it possible for users to bypass the mounds of content available and follow a single story, creating a system where there’s one version of every big breaking news story, and everything else is additional context. The creators have yet to unveil Circa’s business model because it’s under development, but following the new traction and support they’ve gained recently, it’s possible we’ll see a revolutionary product in the very near future.

Capitol Hill Block Party takes place July 22-24 in (you guessed it) the Capitol Hill neighborhood between Broadway and 12th Avenue East. Once a small one-day affair, the event has expanded into a three-day extravaganza of local and national acts that draws crowds from all over the country. Q13 Fox News spoke to SSG Music editor in chief Nikki Benson about the history of the festival, her website, and what acts to catch at this year’s Capitol Hill Block Party.
