The Aggregation Bandwagon

I kinda dissed the New York Observer's new site design a while back, but something I've noticed lately is that the homepage currently serves up almost all external links. Even the top story, right now, is currently a link off site. It's the largest attempt to go full-on aggregation since Drudge (contra HuffPo, which is an ingestor, not an aggregator). None of these are in their RSS feed, but I'd subscribe to something that included only those links.


Have you considered authoring a Yahoo Pipes stream to parse a feed with just the links you want?

It's not in the RSS in the first place, so no. The only way to do it would be to write a scraper.

Sounds cool. I thought it was still in the Beta format?
