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 am do.
I'm working on 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.
I've posted some further throughts on this (mainy in response to comments I've received) here
Take a look at www.feedbeagle.com. 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.
