Identified next personal block after some false starts: toolkit which makes not only subscribing to content but maintaining subscriptions+crawling historical content extremely easy.

Basic requirement for compelling services:

  • feed reader
  • spam prevention
  • search engine

all of which I’ve started building separately before realising that it makes much more sense for them to all be the same thing.

Made a lot of progress on foundations this afternoon, code still in domain-specific anti-spam tool repo github.com/barnabywalters/shrewdness but nearly ready to be packaged up and put to use!
