Earning the Right to Filter Your News?

Ed Horowitz wants to know if he can earn the right to be the place people go to filter all our news, cause it's a lot of work to go to all those sites.

Ed, meet NewsGator. Or any of the other RSS feed aggregators. Cause it's not about going to a million sites. It's about going to your computer and seeing it all come to you.

after a while, reading 100 or more feeds a day becomes difficult. you have to manage them somehow ... why not try and do news event discovery via correlation? robin good has referred to this as "newsmastering", and its an effective way to get your news.

it's how i get my news now, dozens of news feeds continually monitored, correlated and filtered to give me world news. excellent for watching politics, by the way.
