Raw vs Moderated

Dave is conducting a public experiment with OPML subscriptions lists. Personally, I’m a bit sceptical about the value of raw subscription lists – I’d much rather subscribe to the Human Aggregator than face the hundred’s of feeds that Scoble consumes. RSS may increase the scope of our vision by an order of magnitude over the source web sites, but that’s still just a drop in the blog bucket.

I’m much more interested in moderated views of the blogoverse. For example, the Carnival of the Capitalists is great – I just wish that it had a single, consolidated feed. And Fanblogs is my favorite sports blog. I’d love to see more group blogs that bring together related interests with separate areas of responsibility.

But maybe Dave can prove me wrong. If so, then more power to him.
