Cool news site UI – shame about the news

10×10 follows the UI style of Blinx with a picture wall, presenting related story headlines and links in a lightbox when a picture is selected.

Unfortunately, it seems to have pursued the route of aggregating stories with single tags. Consequently, a picture of Russian President Putin was tagged under “Countries”, and when that picture was selected, it listed 6 stories of which only one was related to the picture, the other five being “Country” stories. This makes browsing news a little random.

Consequently, I’m not sure this one is going to be a hit as a news site.
