Who is I?

Want to take a new look at news feeds? Whoisi is a feed aggregator with a few distinctive features, firstly it is orientated around people, secondly it allows you to associate an individual with pretty much anything that provides an RSS feed, it is also an experiment with anonymous collaboration.

News feeds are organised around people (e.g. John Resig) and for people who just have one blog it isn’t very exciting but if someone has a Twitter stream, a blog or two, Flickr and a LiveJournal then suddenly you are looking at a consolidated view of everything that person is up to.

Which is either really cool or is the behaviour of a demented stalker. For people who have a strong web presence and are generally pretty cool and interesting then it is really useful to get a single view of them. For example John’s JQuery conference posting works better when you combine Twitter and the photostream.

I think I kind of prefer Whoisi’s liberal anarchy to most of the other sites I have seen. It asks important questions as to how the web should work. Why do we need accounts and passwords? If information is public then do individuals get a say in how they information they provide is organised?
