Knowledge Aggregation

I cannot believe it, using human farms (a.k.a blog writers) to mine and aggregate knowledge, damn this is brilliant…

Oh, and users are going to demand new ways of exporting searches. Google showed us that with News Alerts. Enter in a search term, like “Microsoft” and get emailed anytime a news source mentions Microsoft. Feedster goes further than that. There you can build an RSS feed from a search term. I have several of those coming into my RSS News Aggregator and find they are invaluable for watching what the weblogs are saying about your product, company, or market. For instance, one of my terms I built a feed for is “WinFS” — I’ll be watching to see how many people link to this article and if any of you have something interesting to say I’ll even link back.
