Because I will think of it as that until told better, 
what is the difference?

Maybe I have a wrong idea of what can be done with the 
aggregator because my model is subscription/notification. 
For example, in my business, an agency/officer can subscribe to 
a record change or the entry of a record with some 
information of some kind (say, anytime some one makes 
a query with the name 'Len Bullard' in it).  That is 
likely beyond the sort of tech we are discussing here, yes?


From: Michael Champion [mailto:mc@xegesis.org]

.... my point is mainly that "aggregation" of information that is 
unique to me is a bit of a misnomer, so I don't see the value of 
leveraging the RSS+Aggregator infrastructure to do that.  Better to 
build a real pub-sub network?

The 80/20 worse-is-better jabber comes in because one *could* think of 
RSS+Aggregators as a poor man's pub-sub network, but it scares me to 
use that philosophy for information that is intrinsically sensitive and 
time critical.
