Sure, everyone can aggregate feeds now - but is it the aggregation you want, or the commentary? What I found, when I referred people to Edu_RSS during my hiatus of 2006, is that people weren't very happy with it. Some (well, Harold Jarche) even called it 'sterile'. If it's just another headline reader, who cares? (Similarly, if you're reading this newsletter just for the links, you're using the wrong technology - get a Twitter account and start following people, opr build an aggregator like this one; your best reason for reading OLDaily should be the value-add - the seeking of trends, the finding of contexts, the analysis of opinion (hopefully more considered than 140 character snark)).
