What then, is my itch? Bloglines is probably one of the best feed aggregator that I have ever used. And because it is web-based, my subscriptions are centrally managed - useful when you are in front of different computers everyday. Bloglines only needs to fetch the RSS/RDF/ATOM feed once every hour regardless number of subscribers, so it reduces bandwidth usage of the news sites and makes it scale better.
Thanks to the introduction of Bloglines web service, my little script Bloglines2HTML was born.
