FeedFerret is a proposal for web-based feed-aggregation software with some additional features not generally found in feed aggregators:

  • the ability for users to comment on feed items
  • the ability for users to categorize/tag feed items
  • the ability to see what comments others have left on items, and respond to those comments in a threaded way
  • the ability to export the commentary in a format which the original sources could incorporate in their on-site comments (like trackbacks)

All communication would be done using open formats (pre-existing where possible).

With the addition of a blogging feature, FeedFerret would then be one core component of a distributed social network.
