Looks like I wasn’t the only one paying attention to Yahoo’s shopping spree . . .
Suppose that when you stumble upon an interesting blog post, you could click a “Follow on Yahoo” button, much the way you’d tweet a link or “Like” the post on Facebook.

You may follow a handful or a thousand blogs, authors and news sites, but your Yahoo feed would have the power to rank items from all of these sources and show them to you in the order of their likelihood of interest to you, with the top 10 updates being the most interesting ones. It could even provide cogent summaries via its newly acquired Summly technology.
