Grazr - organizing RSS just keeps getting better


I just found this on TechCrunch.  I haven't had much time to review it but from first glance it looks like something I've been thinking about for quite some time.  Before I get into that let's look at what Grazr is.
Definitely read the TechCrunch review.
But does anyone remember mind mapping?  Or information mapping
Well Grazr, to me, looks like reverse information, or mind, mapping.  The outline of the dynamic content is created based on the content on the page...I think.
Anyways, as I said, I need to take a closer look but this looks VERY promising to me.  RSS has the potential to become the next learning pipeline, and OPML is just a piece of that.
I will definitely be working this into my RSS presentation (session 411) at DevLearn2006.

Agree that Grazr is amazing. I just redid my blogroll over at http://www.tinyscreenfuls.com, and it's almost like having a live web-based aggregator embedded right there on my site. Awesome! :-)

I need to check it out a little more, but it looks fabulous.

Brent - I don't really get what you are saying about info mapping or mind mapping using grazr. Seems more like an inline RSS reader - much like bitty browser. I've not really figured out the value - any ideas?

Also, since your comments come up in a separate window, I can't use coComment.
