This is a design that comes up in roundups every once in awhile, and small wonder, it’s neat. Newspond is a sort of news aggregator with a science and technology focus. They determine article importance with their own automated metrics rather than solely by user votes. It’s kind of like TechMeme before they decided to start having editors, but much better looking.
I really like the design. It’s sleak and simple, yet very stylized. It’s slightly reminiscent of Apple, but not quite.
