The only issue with the current aggregators is that they are not
restricted - or even exhaustive - to the code/coder related blogs. This
is arguably something that could be added to one or the other of them
(increasing the number of blogs subscribed and making sure there is a
'code' tag filter)
Ton's point of providing a blog to coders who currently don't have/
don't want to maintain their own, is a valid one.
