We saw this one coming a mile away. MSN has introduced a new service called Filter, where bloggers separate (i.e., "filter") the wheat from the chaff, based on user suggestions. Filter is a fitting metaphor for the post-TiVo age, where users -- for better or worse -- have greater control over what they listen to, watch, and read. But we're wondering if the folks at MSN got this one wrong, at least from a new-media perspective. Why should users get excited about delegating the job of filtering to someone else? Don't we have that model for info management already? Stay tuned ... other ideas are fast approaching.
