Always looking for new ways to spend less time reading blogs, I think that Jim is on to something when he suggests Feedster + Bayesian algorithms to create a new type of aggregator.

Anyone working on this?

I'm working on [1]slash to make it an RSS aggregator, so that several authors can share their feeds. Once this is done, I plan to integrate Bayesian algorithms to automate classification of feeds into a bunch of topics.

That's an awesome idea. I'll see what we can do about that. I know the bayesian libraries are available in Perl and can be applied to other things than spam filtering.

Take a look at You create some categories and assign some stories from RSS feeds to them. FeedBeagle can then automatically assign new stories to your categories based on a Bayesian analysis of their content.
