DailyMe is an RSS Reader where you choose from feeds (topics, filter by keyword) or add your own, and set your delivery as: web version, scheduled email with PDF attachment, mobile text email, scheduled printed personalised newspaper. Coming soon are multiple editions and various customised newspaper layout.
mashable mention they have social network type interaction like: posting comments, blogging content, sharing your profile.
We are able to filter stories, but what about filtering within your feedset (instead of seeing every story from every feed, or at least reading every story by tag topics).
I like the backend work of MyFeedz, the way it filters stories by tag (not keyword), and it will also memetrack or cluster similar stories, I can’t remember if these stories with lots of clustered items rise to the top as they are most popular. If so, in a newspaper, these would be the bigger editorials.
I guess you could even rank feeds, as an alternate setting, in addition to most popular stories in general, you could have preference to see popular stories from a selection of feeds, even if they are not popular as some stories from other feeds.
And as I’ve mentioned before, the newspaper could be sectioned by tags, or perhaps sections could be based on a different set of feeds.
In the future I envision a DailyUs, a newspaper you could make to distribute…there would perhaps be issues with licensing content and advertising royalties.
But I guess all feeds in the directory could be paid, and if their articles are part of a distributed newspaper they get royalties…advertising could be contextually generated, and advertisers pay DailyUs to be included.
The advertising is easier enough, as advertisers pay upfront, but what about feed publishers, an online edition is OK as you read the summary and link back to their site, just like search engine results…in fact lots of RSS remixing sites allow you to collate full-text content from various feeds into the one page.
In the print world, if you print a full-text newspaper and distribute (non-personal use), then these feed sources need to get paid, and DailyUs couldn’t measure this by clicks.
As I mentioned you can get email delivery, which is a list of headlines and summaries.
The PDF is similar only the stories are in columns and it seems a few are full-text…the stories are sectioned by feed name or topic.
The web version is also in columns, and the stories are summaries, some in boxes to give a featured look, and then we have other stories as title headlines, and a tag cloud listing the current most popular keywords from the content in the DailyMe feed index (what about a tag cloud limited to just your own feed set).
Navigation is by tabs, click on a topic tab, then click on a feed within this topic.
Click a link to read the summary on its own page, and be able to link to the original story, save it, print it, email it, bookmark it, rate it, and leave a comment.
I can’t see inhouse blogging or notes, or networking features, but this could become a social network news sharing hub, like FeedEachOther and Streamy…but then again too many features is not a good thing.
I’m guessing we see every story from our feed set, not just popular ones.
Ideal RSS Print Newspaper (or Magazine)
All stories are full-text with a visible link to the original, so you can read the story when you go online…also visible links to every reference in the article (maybe all this stuff could be in an appendix somewhere, so as not to ruin the look and flow of the newspaper).
I like the MyFeedz idea where you can import your OPML and then choose tags, then you can read content either by feed or tag…or you can let MyFeedz scan your OPML and deliver content by auto-tag.
The content that doesn’t fit in your manual tags, could then be put in a tag called “other”, this way you are not missing out on content.
The highly linked to articles could be ranked first, and the related articles labled underneath.
So if MyFeedz had a DailyMe newspaper layout, you would get a front page with the 3 or so most popular articles of the day in your feed set…the 2nd - 4th page would also have popular articles (the 2nd page would also have an index).
The 5th page onwards would have stories under topic tags…the last few pages would have stories that don’t fit in any of the topic tags, or perhaps they could come under auto-tagged topics.
The back page could have recommened stories, just like MyFeedz and Megite.
Feed Journal (RSS Star)
I think a Newspaper view and print out should be a feature in any RSS Reader
