[Draft] Follow anyone

I just wanna keep track of people I care for and find interesting. The type of feed(s) available for subscription (blog, micro-blog, chat, forum) is a secondary concern.

The ‘universal feed reader’ application of my dreams works as follows:

(1) Insert a website, e.g. https://pluralistic.net

(2) Ask me which of the following feeds (scraped from the site; optionally assisted by standardized meta-data) I’d like to subscribe to: – https://craphound.com/podcast/https://pluralistic.net/plura-list (mailing list) – https://pluralistic.net/feed/ (rss) – https://twitter.com/doctorowhttps://mamot.fr/@pluralistic (activitypub) – https://doctorow.medium.com/https://mostlysignssomeportents.tumblr.com/

(3) Give me a daily/weekly/monthly digest of this person’s posts, based on my frequency preference.

I've not seen a lot of examples of this kind of interface in practice. A few that come to mind are Google Inbox and LindyLearn. Neither perfectly match what I'm describing, but they both play with the concept of information bundling, rather than linear, chronological streams.
