Aggregation isn't narrative. The blogosphere will only start replacing the MSM when it starts leading the discussion.
Compiling some very fractured blogs into a single location gives you a close-up of the fractured nature of Euroblogging.
If there were some editorial summaries or points or comments or pretty much anything more interactive than a list of linked content, there might be some danger of that starting to happen.
The feeds could be there and available - but with a heavily curated front end - and the possibility offered to others to create customised front ends for it.
I always think 'engine' when I see routine formatting errors - because of automation - in search results. This feels like an engine.
I agree about the engine feel though, and - unfortunately - that feel creates a narrative of its own, by implication.
Anyone here got an idea for a good newsletter title?
The issue is that we're all doing this in our free time, also the guys working on the technical side. So we're going to have to wait a while to get out of beta.
Customisation is already possible in terms of language; you can select which languages you want to see displayed. Right now this is only useful for German and French.
Front ends can always be added in the future. First, metrics are needed. Aggregation is one form of fact gathering. It is important for the simple reason that, like the first steam engine, it does a lot of heavy, boring lifting.
The EU itself IS fractured, if you want to use that word. I'd prefer 'culturally biodiverse' ;-)
I am beginning to see the EU as a unique structure in the history of politics and government.
You can't be me, I'm taken
Fact-checking is a very, very useful tool to have in your kit, and I think the MSM cares enough about its own credibility to pay heed.
