I went to MSN’s ‘Filter’ today and wondered – when it comes to blog content, is ‘Filter’ a good thing or a bad thing? A good filter is google-like. I put in a term and it goes out and finds the most relevant results. I had high hopes that this is what MSN’s ‘Filter’ was going to be all about. You know, a focused alternative to Technorati. Then I figured it out. This isn’t like Technorati at all. MSN Filter is like Boing Boing. Bloggers submit their own posts and a team of people put up their favorites.
Yup – a hip Microsoft group blog for beautiful RSS deficient people. I wonder who will play the part of Xeni?
For now, I’ll pass on ‘Filter’.
