Newsvine is now live

Seattle-based Newsvine, an online news service, is out of beta and open to anyone, CEO Mike Davidson wrote on his blog Wednesday.

“The decision when to release to the world was a tough one for us. The site has come so far in its short existence, and yet, we feel we still have so far to go. Things are never finished around here, but that’s a good thing.”

Newsvine will aggregate news stories — mostly from the Associated Press, it looks like — but it also invites contributions from individuals. And in an attempt to keep things from turning into a massive flame war, the company has imposed a “code of honor,” which asks participants to play nice and avoid self-promotion or sensationalistic headlines.
