Barron's Comments On 24/7 Wall St.

The following comments are from the Electronic Investor section of this week's Barron's. The author is Kathy Yakal.

EXPANDING THE CONVERSATION to the broader investing universe, 24/7 Wall St. ( bills itself as a "blog-aggregation site," since about 40% of the content comes from outside sources. But its original news and analytical content is top-notch, too.
