French Media Companies Join To Launch RSS Newsreader

This is the first such joint industry-wide effort I’ve heard of: About 15 French media/online media companies have joined together, under the umbrella of GESTE, the Online Publishers Organisation in France, to launch a branded RSS newsreader called AlertInfo. The reader is built on the open-source Feedreader.

The free newsreader can be dowloaded from participating sites, which include: lesechos.fr, latribune.fr, lemonde.fr, lefigaro.fr, lentreprise.com,
lexpress.fr, lexpansion.com, france2.fr, liberation.fr, rtl.fr, nouvelobs.com, france3.fr, lequipe.fr, 01net.fr, zdnet.fr,
businessmobile.fr and soon, france5.fr et m6.fr.
