Congoo.com, the person suggested, is a great way to do it. A bit skeptical – and thinking the post may be spam – I checked it out. Congoo NetPass is a pretty strong program, combining limited access to specialized news with some social networking.
The fact that it’s a downloadable toolbar may scare off some folks, but it seems legit. Congoo may be more appropriate for people who may not normally read the Journal and Financial Times, but hey, it doesn’t hurt that it’s free.
