@manny_orduna It's the electrical ground symbol, so no surprise there's more than one company using it.

@harleen I'm sad that I wasn't geeky enough to be in on it :(

List and map views of news. I use a lot of news services and Ground has my favorite.

Pros:

Verified news summary, global or local. Links to more indepth news

Cons:

Nothing so far . .

Thanks Guy- we have figured out that there are people who like exploring the Map and people who like efficient feed format. We have included both the features.
Congrats on the Launch! Where do you see Ground going in the next 6-12 months, Harleen? More crowdsourced news? More AI? More editorial? Looks great so far!

@andrewpflynn thanks ! Plan is to keep adding more news sources. We have over 10K news publications included but we aim to have every single credible international/national and local publication included.
