mixx, digg, etcc.

Mixx is a new news tagging site, like Digg, only with the ability to form groups around certain topics – so if you’re following a particular candidate in the upcoming elections, you can get news about them, and be a part of a group that is interested in reading about that person and commenting on the stories.  So, little mini-communities surrounding news items.  I imagine this could be very successful around famous people, but it might be a nice way to get news and comment about any topic of interest, like Global Warming, or Electric Cars, or whatever.  I like the idea – i’ll have to try it out and see how it goes.  What’s with the double letters as part of Web 2.0 names?
