More musings on the not-better-RSS-aggregator


One correspondent asked: "Isn't this what bb:library is about or Technorati Blog Directory or egs. like Corante Web Hub, Global Voices, World Changing?"


Well, it might be a reinvention of those wheels. I don't know yet. I know I am not interested in reinventing wheels. But let me play some more. Here's what I wrote back:


"But I imagine this new product/service if it is built, will have in it's plumbing information like what we have in the library and also an rss aggregator.



But the idea is that this thing will never include the words rss, opml etc. To give you and idea, some of the names I've played with are:

feed.tv

omnivor.us

the daily ME

eclecti.ca

Why? Because I imagine this being something that someone who loves to keep up looks at daily and finds stuff of interest. Corante Web hub is kind of like that, but for a few (3 I think) topics. Also they have original content.



This thing is more like a tv with 1000 channels that you can pick from depending on what your interested in.



By the way the target for this would be very different than for BlogBridge. BB is for power feed readers, this thing would be for people that barely know how to check their email.



Am I nuts? Please stop me before I go off the deep end again :)"


By the way, which name speaks to you the most? None of them available anyway, sigh...
