Relevance Rank for News and Weblogs

Greg Linden writes:

If you use a feed reader like Bloglines, there must have been at least a few times you’ve looked at the overwhelming pile of unread articles with a sigh. So much to read.

All feed readers organize the articles in the same way. They group the articles by feed and sort the articles by date. So, you go through, click on each feed, skim the articles, and slog on through.

“Wouldn’t it be nice,” you’ve probably thought, “if these articles were sorted by relevance? Maybe the most important articles at the top and least important at the bottom? Then I could just read the articles from top to bottom, stopping when I get bored or run out of time.”

This would be good to have as part of the Information Dashboards.
