Does Australia need an AOD-dedicated news service?

Over the past two months I’ve had a larger than expected response to this blog’s launch. People are glad that there’s a web-based place to debate AOD issues, although the number of people debating is very small at present. Like a lot of other people in the field I get my AOD news from a huge range of sources: industry newsletters / magazines, ADCA update email list, mainstream media, NGO and peak body press releases, Australian blogs and international blogs.

What I’m asking of readers is: would you find it useful to have a site where all this info is available in one place? A news portal where each day the latest news links, publication links and any other data can be seen?

Your thoughts greatly appreciated. I’m willing to expand the site to that level but would need to know there was support for such a service – and yes, it would be free.
