Unsurprisingly, people are clamoring for more and more feed splicing on the part of FeedBurner. Given that “feed splicing” is really just a form of presenting multiple RSS feeds, it’s looking like the difference between Bloglines and FeedBurner is one of degree rather than kind. They’re both services that monitor feeds and then present them in different ways. I’d think that Bloglines could be in the feed splicing business next week if they so chose. What this really all points to is how compelling the idea of publishing your content in a machine readable format really is. I’m not sure if this is what people were talking about when they were harping on the semantic web, but it might as well have been.
