Ross Mayfield asks for MeMeme, and I agree…
Two of my favorite sites are TechMeme and Memeorandum – two great memediggers. Together with sites like TailRank, they give me alot of interesting stories without necessarily having to subscribe to a bunch of blogs.
I subscribe to a bunch of blogs anyways, but that’s beyond the point..
Ross Mayfield wants a MeMeme:
Every time I see Gabe Rivera of TechMeme, I ask for the same thing — MeMeme. Give me TechMeme where the core index is based on who I read, about 150 people at any given time, to show me what my friends are interested in. I used to ask this from people who make Newsreaders. Because simply somedays you are too busy to read everything, but you want to make sure you haven’t missed something big. That’s the real value I derive from TechMeme today. But what I really want find something that is big with my friends, which in the larger blogosphere is actually something small.
First, this is a great idea.. I think it would work great for blog networks or just across an individual reader’s OPML file..
I believe that to some extent TailRank can already do this.
Sam Ruby goes on to post some code that will do a simple canonicalization..
Now I’m wondering if we can do this easily across our network… hmmm
