I’m in the process of converting all of my links on this site into Furl categories which I’ll then push to a specific page which will display the link and my annotation. You can see an example here. I need to play with it a bit, and I really need to think through the categories as obviously I won’t be able to organize much within the groups. But I’m just thinking this could be a much better way of keeping track of good stuff that I come across and share it. And the annotation piece of it makes it even better. (AND, a little birdie told me Furl has even more cool features scheduled for implementation in the near future.)
Even better, if there is one particular feed of mine that you want to subscribe to, just click the link and slap in your Bloglines account and you can follow along in my travels.
I swear, I love RSS.

Will – Can you give me some info on why you are using furl.net? What’s the benefit? Thanks.

I’m a Furl user myself, and I very much like the example of ‘furling around’ that you present in this post. One technical point intrigues me: “… which I’ll then push to a specific page…” Push, how ? Can you show how these Furl categories become embedded in the http://www.weblogg-ed.com/rss_links page ? Thanks.

I was just extolling some of these same virtues at a department brown bag a few days ago: using a link tool like Furl not just for oneself but to syndicate and shae.
I am using del.icio.us in much the same way, as it too creates rss feeds that I can pick up and integrate. To tell the truth, I use both del.icio.us and furl quite a bit… haven’t settled down on best practices for myself yet.
I will be in heaven when del.icio.us gets multiple tag feeds going or Furl creates feeds for searches, as I find a single level of category to be a bit stifling…

I think what you are asking for is just over the horizon…
