End-of-week RSS

June 19, 2018

Backstory: I try to read for about 20-30 minutes a day online. Most of the articles are from Medium or the same few blogs.

The idea: A small summary of articles you commonly read at the end of the week.

Deep Dive: Here's one way that this could work:

  • The user would up an RSS feed that pulls from the publications that they like.
  • Every Friday, software would read the RSS feed and output all articles into one PDF file.
  • The PDF file would be emailed to the user.

Validation: Content aggregators and summaries are thriving in our "instant gratification" culture.

Monetization: You could charge a small monthly fee for these summaries.
