I’m pleased to see that Adobe has moved closer to creating internet applications in addition to their amazing web suites. myFeedz was launched and is a filter. Yahoo launched their filter called Pipes a few weeks ago, (as I remember the antiquated myYahoo) which I’m starting to see a few examples emerge here and there, such as this interesting feed of Upcoming events of a trusted network
I'm not going to join either Pipes or MyFeedz until I start hearing more voices in my trusted network having success with it (that's my trick by the way, I'm a second generation adopter with new technology, I let the first adopters try it out).
I'm curious however, aside from the interesting interface and tagcloud, what's the strategic benefit of myFeedz? I can do a keyword query in bloglines by IAC, what benefit does myFeedz offer in addition to that?
I use Google Reader most of the time, (you can see my shared feed) and see a tremendous amount of opportunity, which I’m sure the Reader team is already working on.
Here’s my ultimate reader:
I enjoy the Google Reader interface, the hotkeys make it easy to scream through content (Scoble taught me some tricks) , keep the sharing ability. Quantify and highlight multiple entries and keywords: Sometimes I see duplicate items come through my feedreader, those items should be somehow indicated they are ‘hot’ Intelligently look for other feeds that show similar characteristics from my trusted network (that may be hard to figure out) Intelligently learn how to filter out the junk, look for patterns Never show ads, even if embedded in the posts.
