Hitting that button will send you to a random news article published on abc.net.au in the past 24 hours. It's surprisingly addictive.
Inspired by this, and my love both for serendipity and news, I decided to build something.
This site is the result of that experiment.
Then I tried making one for the New York Times. Unlike random-guardian, that site doesn't keep the little bar at the top of the page, because I didn't like the idea of messing with the nytimes.com framebusting code.
Finally, not wanting to neglect my home country, I decided to build a news roulette based on the ABC, which out of all of the news sites in Australia, has the most daily content published.this, put it in your bookmarks bar or something, and when you feel the need for some randomness, give it a press.
