The Feed Filter wars begin: Adobe, Yahoo, Google Reader, Bloglines. (and what I want as a user)

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 networkbloglines 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.
