Want to keep up with RSS services and tools, well the ever clever Marjolein Hoekstra has done some awesome newsmastering and presents a feed grazing window into the RSS world.
Basically she has collected a feedset for RSS services, which can be grazed in Grazr.
This has all been collected in BlogBridge and packaged in an OPML, the beauty of it is when she adds a new feed, it will appear in the Grazr feed set.
Here is a list I sometimes update, this list is very dumb and static.
Compare it to Marjolein’s web2.0 style list…very dynamic indeed, read stuff without leaving the list.
Also I’d like to see this list by type eg. RSS readers, RSS filter/splice, RSS alerts, RSS re-syndicate, etc….maybe using folders.
I guess you’d have to choose between the A-Z list or by type, I wonder if you could do both?
Grazr has come a long way, I hope they plan to allow people to create the actual OPML using Grazr…at the moment I use OPML Workstation, (I haven’t tried iJot yet) this allows me to create any kind of OPML, not just feeds.
Grazr could also host a place to present your OPML, instead of Marjolein’s having to use a blog post, but a blog post does allow you to post announcements about your OPML Grazing List, and also use the sidebar portal like features. Grazr do have a permanent link at their website for your Grazing List, but I’m talking a proper user space like BlogBridge library.
- create and host an OPML Reading List only
- at the moment it is just a feed directory, with an inbuilt blog…you can’t read content…coming soon I hope
- also I’d like to see some code to add a BlogBridge feed grazer to your blog sidebar
…this way your enterprise could make a feed directory, where you can take the feeds away to read in your RSS Reader or read them in the directory itself, and also be able to get code to re-syndicate a spliced feed for your OPML topic or even better an OPML Grazer.
This way the Intranet page for your business unit can host a little public RSS/OPML Reader/Grazer instead of having to go to the directory.
Staff members could bookmark this page and read the latest, without requiring their own RSS Reader…wow, you could have a whole heap of bookmarks for various topic Grazers.
Or make your own Grazr and use OPML includes for each topic OPML, this Grazr could be like your Favourites for OPML topics…I guess we will see OPML directories get out of hand in the future.
