Writing new content (à la Linux Weekly News) is a massive effort.  I would expect any attempt at such a product to peter out in short order.

A big, big +1 for Sacha's weekly Emacs News.  I find it just the right level of detail.  It directs one to Emacs mail threads, upcoming events and get togethers, blogs and Reddit posts, Youtube videos, etc.  And, IIRC, she is even set up to accept contributions from others.  Let's support her.

This is actually quite an effort. AFAIK, the author had difficulties
allocating time to write more posts for TMiO.

Also, for reference, we are talking about

A somewhat relevant effort is by Sacha Chua:

It is less detailed (just an outline), but I find it pretty useful.
