    "Fueled by the enormous growth of the Web and the steadily rising cost of paper, the future of daily newspapers has been a hot topic lately. Consequently, editors have been rushing to adapt their newspapers to the Internet. For the most part, though, Web editions of the dailies simply mirror their print cousins. Enter Crayon. This ambitious site allows the online media junkie to customize his own personal newspaper. By providing a host of news-related links, Crayon places U.S. and local news, weather, business, sports, arts, entertainment and even the comics, at one's fingertips. And by keeping resources as diverse as the Associated Press news wire and ex-MTV VJ Adam Curry's Guide to Cybersleaze in one convenient place, Crayon makes the wealth of information drifting through cyberspace personable, and more importantly, manageable."
