My Yahoo RSS Beta

Recently JZ published published the launch of the new beta service from Yahoo which allows you to aggregate a number of RSS feeds which you can select yourself or choose from a list. I've taken a look at it and it is pretty good, I'm sure there will be a lot more added as time goes on.

In a follow up, Jeremy Zawodny also posted an easy way to make MT ping Yahoo each time your blog is updated, so that the feed is updated by Yahoo, which will be better for anyone using this RSS service and has your blog listed as they will get updated posts quicker, as Yahoo will pull the feed every so often.

From a web based interface, this is perfect - you can see what's been talked about on the blogs you read from any web browser without having to visit each site. When you are in front of your box, you can also use this method or use a software based aggregator. In both instances, it saves time but the web based method means you can have the latest information at a glance from any computer with Internet access and a decent browser.
