standing on the toes of Giants

I posted about Feeds plus and I’ve been using it for a few days, it aggregates feeds in IE, it’s great  but it’s really opened my eyes to something I’ve long suspected. I use tabbed browsing to follow the route I got to a particular website hopefully tracking, except these aren’t routes that are developing, they’re far too often cyclical and there’s a hell of a lot of recycling,  very little original comment. Newton is purported to have  said that all science was possible because we see a little further by standing  on the shoulders of giants (although wikiP say’s it’s earlier). blogging far too often seems to be standing on the toes of our giants, it doesn’t get us much further and it just hacks the big  guys off. except when they wallow in self glory that is.
