Like all other non-profit centres, it will slowly disappear.

Nope, redundancy in this context is totally unnecessary. First of all: blogs aggregators are not sources of learning. They are purely and simply a convenience index. I don't need 100 aggregator blog lines telling me Tom Kyte has updated his blog: it's stupid and redundant. I can figure it out in a single line in OraNA. It hardly needs any "reinforcement": the meaty content is in his blog, not the aggregators.

So the solution is to add noise?

What makes you think that I think Eddie's is Oracle-marketing? Why is it that
once I say something about ratshit
Oracle-marketing, someone has to twist
it into what I didn't say?

Eddie's OraNA is simply another victim of the dementia that is Oracle-marketing

That is the point: the fact that aggregators have been reduced to carriers of noise, because of silly marketing notions.

That would indeed be silly of me, given
that I seldom update my blog...
