Newspond looks like Digg, but it’s not Digg. It’s an AJAX’ed “self-sufficient news engine”.

Newspond uses an AI brain to discover and sort news as it surfaces all across the internet. And unlike other news aggregators, it doesn’t just relate news stories. It reasons, using every possible piece of data about what people are doing with a story. How strong is the discussion surrounding the story? How many people are reading it? What kind of sites are reporting it? Newspond looks at it all and assigns a Buoyancy Rating, a measure of the precise upward force the internet is exerting on a story.

Here is the developer’s blog and here is my profile on Newspond.
