Meerkat : O’Reilly’s web-based RSS reader

Came across O’Reilly’s Meerkat today although it’s apparently been in operation for quite a few months. What is it? Here’s what O’Reilly says about it:

“While maintaining the original association of a story with a channel, Meerkat’s focus is on chronological order — the latest stories float to the top, regardless of their source. ”

It’s an interesting site that my writing skills can’t really do justrice. It has to be experienced to really be understood but I’ll do my best to describe it. There are “profiles” that restrict the stories that are displayed on the main page. Along with or instead of that you can select categories or specific channels to be displayed. And, of course, you can search the stories. If you register with the O’Reilly Network you can create your own profile.
