Subscription bounded blog search
One thing that I find repeatedly frustrating is when I’ve seen a really cool article or posting about something (usually on a blog, or linked from a blog) that I want to reference or go back to, and I just can’t find it again. This would be less of a problem if I was a more diligent social bookmarker, though I then expect I’d just get lost in a sea of bookmarks and tags.
The answer I think is to have subscription scoped search (with the option to spider to a given link depth). Then I could just upload my OPML file (or start from my online aggregator if I used such a thing) type in some keywords and the magic would commence.
Wishful thinking, a reasonable feature request for you know who, or already being done and I was just too dumb to figure out where and how?
PS It continues to amuse me that the spellchecker on the tool that I’m using to write this doesn’t recognise the word ‘blog’ – come on guys this is the business that you’re in!
