Information overload? Not when RSS readers get smarter

Posted by Lotta Holmstrom

A new service aims to take the stress out of RSS reading. It’s easy to sign up for more feeds than you have time to read. In comes Blastfeed, a keyword based filter that sorts out what you’re really interested in in all the feeds you’re subscribing to.
You can use for instance your bloglines blog list, since the service is OPML based, writes Beta Alfa 2.0.

I certainly subscribe to more RSS feeds than I read, nulling them from time to time to get a fresh start. I’ll check out Blastfeed and see how it works for me. My guess is that the keyword based search is a first step towards more intelligent filtering, where you can weight different keywords and have multiple channels for your searches.

The site is in beta, but Steve Rubel has 100 invites to give away, and says you’re welcome to email him.
