I think that you should reduce the distance between reading and writing. Tumblr, Facebook, and Twitter have all proven the importance of being able to re-share easily the things you love. Wordpress has a nice "Blog This" bookmarklet but it is just another step to take.
Instead, I'd like to bring a feed reader into Wordpress that lets you blog from your blogroll.
That's a lot of work to do. I'm going to take a stab at it, but I'd love your help. Let's make wordpress even better.
Right now I've got a list of feeds and selecting a feed brings up entries in that feed.
In your wordpress Admin Screen:
If you want the very latest code, ssh into your plugins directory and clone the project with Git by running:
$ git clone git://github.com/mattkatz/Orbital-Feed-Reader
Contributing is easy!
gem install ditzIf you don't like Ditz, that's fine - GitHub issues work too.
Let's keep it decentralized! I'm using Ditz to track bugs. You can always use the github issue tracker, but check out what ditz gives you.
