I don’t want an aggregator. I want a skimmer.
Functionally, the two are quite alike. But while an aggregator pulls together the stuff I want to read, the point of a skimmer is to let me figure out what not to read.
I’m not looking to read automatic summaries because, well, they suck (see the next blog entry). Once I’ve decided to read something, the skimmer lets me read it in full. I just want help in knowing what not to read.
(As far as aggregators go, I’m continuing to like Bloglines.com.)
