My gets RSS

My Yahoo's rss aggregator (beta) might be just the ticket for getting regular folks consuming blogs in a big way. Or RSS could remain the provence of the geeks. Thoughts? Is this the beginning of RSS for the people?

As Luke says, It sorts by blog name and lists each entry under that instead of sorting by date. It seems to have no concept of items you've read either. And it supports only 25 RSS entries per page. I take back what I said about "cool stuff". It's nice to see syndication turning mainstream, but this has a ways to go.

I'll stick to using Feed on Feeds.

and only ten entries per blog. I don't know what they're afraid of. They oughta just buy bloglines.
(not cuz it'd be good for bloglines users, but because the blogline developers deserve to get rich)

Didn't -- a pretty high-traffic site for those years when people still used Netscape -- start this whole aggregation thing with RSS precursor RDF in the first place? It's not the first time end users have been offered aggregation tools on a highly popular, mainstream website.

More useful would be MyYahoo -as- RSS, methinks.

It's an interesting concept...but since Yahoo is left with mostly MBA's since they laid off all their's a concept that doesn't work. But it promises to, as soon as it gets back from a round of golf and takes a meeting...
