I have been trying to various socio-econoimic policy issues across states regularly. The problem with regular news search is that they often throw up the same states. To search state by state using the state names is cumbersome. I am working on a system to automate the process. For example, I gave the keyword “budget” here. My Yahoo pipes system automatically generates four queries: “Tamil nadu budget”, “Kerala budget”, “Karnataka Budget” and “Ahdnra budget” (without quotes), gets the top 10 results for each, puts them together and gives it to me. If this works well, I will add other states soon.
