Finds: MSNBC's news viz tool Spectra

Hey folks,

Forward this from Dave Crist...

Ben.

You crank it up, then you add news channels.  They get loaded into the middle of your screen in a 'tornado'/vortex, designated categories are color-coded.

I think it is a little confusing at first, because the vortex of news stories doesn't seem to be able to be accessed randomly.  I was only able to get to a story and read it or follow a link to it by sliding the scroll bar at the bottom or clicking the arrows.
