Lanny Arvan takes Merlot to task, arguing that its content review process doesn't serve downstream users. I like the way he sketches an alternative: "So go to Bloglines.com, do a search on your favorite topic (I chose edtech) and then for some of the blogs that come up, click on “Subscribers” and you should see the list of those subscribers who made their subscription public. Then click on a few of them and see what they have as their feeds in the topic you searched. Then a couple of more iterations on the same. I think you’ll find that its seems like there are a few core blogs that many people read and then a bund more out there. Those core blogs end up being the trusted sources I mentioned above."
