FUSE Labs: Social News Search for Companies

The really cool thing about the demo was the ability to crowdsource the content. As you'll see in the video at the 2:15 timeframe, a user can help curate the content by adding news sources such as RSS feeds, Twitter users, search terms and more. It's very simple to use and an interesting approach alongside other sites such as Techmeme, Digg or a simple search.
