Feed Me Local Search

30 Jan ’07

I spend very little time on the Web anymore – or at least, little time that is not referred by my feeds. Which has had me wondering when we’re going to see more local search-type information presented in feeds. I’d love to see a service that allowed me to customize a feed or feeds to serve me local information – information like events (concerts, theatre, readings, movies, and so forth), restaurant reviews – even sales at local grocers or other merchants. No doubt there are mammoth data collection issues, but RSS seems a much better method for data delivery than email newsletters or web publication, and I’d be happy to accept advertising to receive custom feeds for this kind of data.
