Comments: It's Gotten to the Point Where..

Filters are good, provided that you know what you want clearly enough to specify the filter.

Filters are good, provided that they have good discrimination - accurately pick up what your specification is intended to pick up and reject what you don't want.

Filters are also, unfortunately, good at eliminating a lot of serendipity.

This sounds a bit like Rojo, whereby the aggregator is geared toward reading what your fellow Rojo-readers have read and/or flagged (although there's no linking involved). I tried it and liked it, but there weren't enough people in the pre-launch invitation network to make it compelling as an alternative to how I usually go about reading blogs. Maybe that will change if/when it gains traction.
