(via the ever prolific Alan Levine) The nice thing with Feed Digest is that it lets you rip and mix a few feeds together and then gives you some code to throw it all on a Web page pretty easily. Here’s my blogjotsflickr content all in one place just for kicks. A little rough on the eyes, but you get the point. Useful if your students have blogs along with furl or del.icio.us or jots accounts and a Flickr site and a H2O playlist and some search feeds and a Wist account and…
So just how much is the upgrade to more than three feeds?
Alan dutifully notes the beginning of Syndication 2.0 where we do more than just passively collect feeds; we rip ’em and mix ’em and mash ’em and publish ’em in new ways and forms. Works for me.

Duncan Riley noted the problem of “content theft”, what I call plagiarism, with the re-publishing of entire articles. It will be easy to run into problems here.

“Content theft” is just going to become such a big issue, I think. Teachers are going to have to rethink the expectations they have of student work in a lot of different ways when “the sum of all human knowledge” is already online.
