Channel Dean: "An RSS feed

Channel Dean: "An RSS feed that's like a clipping service for people interested in US politics." Dave Winer and some co-conspiritors have created something really cool: a new feed which brings together a series of feeds that all relate to US Politics. As I've said before, hats off to these kinds of innovation. I'm just loving it! Here's the RSS (XML) link if you want to try it.This development raises some interesting questions/ideas:

  • What is the Dean-bias of this feed? Is it in fact a feed for people interested in US politics or one for Dean Supporters interested in US Politics. And with the subtlety of marketing and political campaigns these days, how do I even tell the difference?

  • It's pretty cool to see CNN articles right next to BBC, Salon, AP and NYT articles. For me, as a reader, it's exactly what I want. How do the content providers feel about it? Is this anything new with respect to intellectual property and copyright?

Keep 'em coming. This is what makes this space ("this" = RSS, Blogging, Syndication, etc.) so exciting.
