Blastfeed

This site http://www.blastfeed.com/ helps to reduce information overload – you can select your RSS feeds, define what you want to get from them (using keywords) and then get the filtered results via email, IM or RSS.  I currently use Google Reader to aggregate my RSS feeds.  I would love to have fewer posts to trawl through. But from a horizon-scanning pov, I’m not sure whether filtering them would be a good idea as I may miss important new things for which I don’t currently have a keyword.

Hmmm… Whilst I’m not a huge RSS subscriber, I still find there’s too much info. But filtering it before I get it…not sure I would because you miss out on serendipity. Sometimes you see something that isn’t in your area on a feed, but follow it anyhow and find it sparks a different train of thought. And how do you know you’ve got the right keyword,people describe the same things in different ways…
