Once upon a time, I loved localfeeds.com. It was a great little RSS service that collected blog feeds, sorted them by latitude and longitude, and sent you a list of your neighbors’ blog postings.

Unfortunately, while it was very useful, it wasn’t very well managed, and it was apparently destroyed in a disk crash. I’ve been pining for it since February. The author has been promising to resurrect it for months, but it’s been a long, slow process without any obvious progress.

Until today, that is, when I noticed that Localfeeds is collecting data again. Ross has a post on the topic. He started the crawler back up in August. According to my logs, it started reading my blog in earnest on September 13th. At this point, NYC and Harrisburg are working; hopefully the Seattle area will return to life shortly.
