Subscribe is the new search

Lorcan Dempsey's weblog: Subscribe is the new search:
"With increasing adoption of RSS, the concept of 'subscribing' to content on the Web is becoming more prevalent. As this idea continues to gain in popularity, users will be able to subscribe not only to blogs and news, but also to content-feeds (audio, video, documents, photos, calendar events) and lists (playlists, booklists, link-lists, blogrolls, wishlists, Top 10 lists, To-do lists). "
This holds the potential of shifting libraries from repositories of information to publishers of that information... How do we think about a value-added publishing service?
