Like all big newspapers, the Washington Post is stumbling toward an uncertain future, online and off. One of its online experiments is a blog page called Post Remix, where readers with mash-up skills are invited to create hacks of the Post's content (Alt name: the Mashington Post.) The only limit is that the creation be non-commercial, and the Post retains ownership: "Why are we doing this? Because we want to foster innovation, and because we want to see your ideas about new ways of displaying news and information on the Web." One readers' offering, the news cloud shown here as an image, lets you browse the Post's web content by keyword. The larger the size, the more frequently the word occurs in the Post's RSS feeds. You can also click to "zoom in" on a cloud with less-prominent keywords. Technorati uses similar technology to display the busiest topics on the blogs it tracks.
