Pluck is another web-based aggregator that somehow escaped my radar until recently. I don’t know how; it seems like the tech magazines love it.
It’s come up twice, now, once because this blog was picked as a Pluck feed of the day (which was plucking flattering), and then last week when Zml presented it as an alternative feed reader in the RSS presentation in the capstone seminar.
Zml suggested that Pluck had a much more intuitive interface than did Bloglines, and a quick tour suggests to me that this is probably true. Bloglines has grown organically, and is daunting to an aggregator newcomer. It does have some neat features, like throw-away email, but it may be worth plucking around with the new service (no, not bored with that yet) to see whether it’s a better recommendation to new RSSers.
