journa-list.com is a free website that tracks what individual journalists in the UK are writing about. The site catalogs the articles a journalist has written over time so you can read and compare past articles. The site is currently indexing stories from 12 national dailies plus The BBC News Online.

The project is open source so the code is available for viewing. The scraper code might be of interest to anyone trying to glean specific information from RSS feeds.

Nicely done and kudos on the great domain name.
