NewspapeRSS - Software Idea

run the fuck away
I just got a killer idea for an RSS related application. You supply a list of feeds. As new articles appear in the feeds, it runs them through a technorati search to rank them in terms of popularity- and based on that, it lays them out newspaper style, with the most popular article being the main one on the front page.

Could do it web based, but that would mean working in PHP (since that's what my webhost supports) and I hate PHP. Such a clumsy language. *ahem* No, I'm seeing a Cocoa news reader (because I like my Mac!).

Yep. Gonna start on that now.
  • I thought of a similar idea, but one which collates news from multiple sources and then tries to eliminate duplicates. You rate each article on how you like the particular subject, and the article in question on that subject. That way it should learn which things you most want to read about, and which sources you prefer for each.
