Preview: Tabbed river

I have four rivers that I follow pretty much all day while I'm working.

Olympics, tech news, my own personal interests, and New Orleans. I want to be systematic about keeping up with each of these rivers, so I put into tabs on this page:

http://tabs.mediahackers.org/

The Olympics will be intensely interesting for another week or so. Tech news is something I'm always interested in. The tech tab here comes from the feeds in TechMeme's leaderboard. The 100 most frequently cited news sources for the previous 30 days.

New Orleans is interesting because their newspaper, the Times-Picayune, announced that is curtailing printing. I wondered if some of the slack could be picked up by a river of news.

If you have any questions about how this is done, please post a comment here.

Update -- added a feature that allows you to select the active tab from the URL. Useful if you're bookmarking the river and know which one is most important to you.

It also handles the case where you specify a panel that doesn't exist.

Another update -- I added the Berkman river.
