Joe Foley posted on WPMU about news curation and their Autoblog plugin, and it’s relevant to this space. He discusses the value of curated news sites (which I agree with) and says how their plugin can help make one great (which I disagree with). To me, the value of curation is when it’s curated with personal touch. When curation is automated, personality is lost; not to mention that you also lose the ability to be picky from particular sources. You become attached to the RSS feed and anything that comes with it. Just my two cents, read it for yourself.
