There are many RSS aggergators out there. I am not talking news readers, but rather websites that track hundreds of blogs and try to analyze the netowrks they form. Things like blogdex, allconsuming , bookwatch etc.|
I want to allow non-programmers, or at least people with few programming skills to be able to build such tools that can be run on the desktop.
I am thinking of a direct manipulation IDE tool. But before building the GUI environment, I think it would be interesting to design and build a DSL for building aggregators. The IDE will then simply generate code in this DSL.
If anyone is interested in collaborating on such a project let me know. More on my original vision for the BlogLab can be found here.
