Jason Calacanis talks about his next project, the new social news beta from AOL. (Rob also mentioned this earlier today). This comes as little surprise after reading Jason's experiences with Newsvine and hearing him the last few weeks on the Gillmor Gang podcast.

Jason mentioned that one of the first stories that bubbled up to the top was an anti-AOL rant. The top story now is that AOL copies Digg. The Netscape beta is very similar, but covers more than just technical news - something Digg is planning with its pending redesign.

The only curious thing to me here is the decision to re-launch the Netscape brand instead of creating a new brand.
