From the website:
“RSS news reading has, to date, revolved around the metaphor of email. Opening Feeds like mail folders, item lists, marking items as read and flagging items have been, and will continue to be, necessary and important mechanisms for power users who want to ‘consume’ large amounts of information.
myBroadSheet is a different solution for a different type of person. It can broadly be described as an RSS news reader for the mainstream. A mainstream who don’t necessarily want to consume news, but rather experience it in a news reading metaphor their used to.
myBroadSheet is designed for people on the train with their TabletPC (not exclusively – but you get the idea!). It uses a set of visualizations - a newspaper layout for example - that provide an elegant and intuitive news reading and inline media experience so that you can enjoy your news like you would a well designed magazine filled with articles you care about.”
I suppose reading RSS content in widgets is getting close, but all this means is that all your feeds are open at once instead of listed in a subscription panel waiting to be clicked.
myBroadSheet is very much what I was refering to in RSS Daily Newspaper.
For those who missed the post here is the brief:
Create a print newspaper like your local paper where the content is based on the OPML of your feed set, ie. basically your RSS Reader subscriptions.
Also include advertisements as a commerical option, smart advertising is often like content discovery.
If you follow 50 feeds, then there may be too much content each day, so maybe the content can be based on your personal relevancy eg. attention data…or it could be based on popularity (most incoming links)
…at the same time you can limit to filter in/out keywords.
The newspaper can be sectioned according to the name of your feed folders in your RSS Reader or these keywords.
Anyway in the end, the idea is to have a newspaper with sections, ads, and content based on what you want to read…I’ve never seen that in a print magazine or newspaper.
Basically, the personalisation of content in an RSS Reader, sorted by relevancy (personal and popularity), and refined by keyword…but presented in the fashion of a print newspaper.
Again the size of the story, its positioning, features, the front page story will depend on your attention data, keywords, and how popular the story is…in the end all these stories are from your feed set.
