Kinja: more than just simple aggregation?

Perhaps i was wrong with my previous criticism of kinja. Not entirely wrong, but perhaps i missed a point. I don’t know how or in which direction kinja will develop, but tom coates posted an interesting proposition: make kinja a weblog aggregator not for weblog reading (like all those aggregators out there already), but an aggregator for groupblogs, or should i say metablogs. Go read his post now, he’s explaining all this far more eloquently. Shame on me that i didn’t see the potential. It still lacks some features to serve this purpose, like multiple digests per user or rss feeds for the digests – syndicating an aggregator might seem superfluous, but is a necessary option if kinja wants to function as an aggregator on a presentational rather than consumptional level. This could become really interesting.
