#71: RSS Bandit author considers OPML reading lists

Dare Obasanjo is one of the authors of RSS Bandit (a really nice free Windows-based RSS Aggregator) and he’s considering OPML reading lists and wants your feedback.

Why does this matter? Well, it’d let you create your own Memeorandum style newspage for instance.

Dare, what I’d like to do is import my 1,400 feeds and then assign a weight to each of them. Some of those bloggers, for instance, write about politics. Some tech. Some family life. So, what I want is to tag them and then give them a weight in each category. Dave Winer, for instance, outweighs Rick Segal in tech, but Rick outweighs Dave in VC.

If I delete a reading list I don’t want to delete the subscriptions. I think we need two different interfaces for those things.

What do you think?
