Scoble is thinking about building a directory of blogs. I think that he should go for it. In fact, I think that everyone should build a directory of RSS feeds. Because there are some interesting things to be done with the data once we attain critical mass. I’d love to see the most popular feeds on a topic or feeds that are popularly believed to straddle multiple topics.
I used to worry about standardizing names, but now I believe that it’s a self correcting problem. We may start out with chaos, but names should autocorrelate once the results are compiled and published. People want their votes to count, and they will shift toward comformity to insure that they will.
