Brad makes some interesting points about the current round of .NET RSS aggregators. For me support posting is a key feature, one of the reasons I like NetNewsWire so much. But rather than all the aggregator writers writing blogging tools for all the different blogging API's, I'd rather see a simple extensibility point, a BlogThis CLR interface that anyone can implement to provide the actual blogging part, and a way to tell the aggregator the CLR type that it should load / call for blogging support. Ought to be pretty straightforward, I'll happily write a RESTLog client plug-in, if anyone else is up for handling the aggregator end.
