LibWorm: Librarianship RSS Search and Current Awareness. I guess this is what we've been waiting for! This is a project by David Rothman and Frankie Dolan.

Productive Strategies: Free Academic Podcasts is a list of public course lectures available as podcasts (public because they're not restricted to students registered in the courses). Doesn't seem terribly scalable: how far can you go with a list of feeds organized by course title?

RssFwd is supposed to work nicely if you're interested in converting RSS feeds into emails. It was mentioned in passing on ResearchBuzz in a post about cyclic RSS feeds (if you can figure out a neat use for that, let me know).

RSSPECT - automatic and free RSS feeds for everyone. Is this the answer we've been looking for. Only 4 free RSS feeds per account.

Justia Blawg Search is a handy tool for searching law blogs (or blawgs) but unfortunately, as Stephen Cohen points out, you can't create an RSS feed to get notified of future posts relevant to your search. Too bad PubSub seems to have tanked.

Check out UN Pulse: RSS feeds from UN bodies if the United Nations interests you: their feeds are nicely rounded up here so you don't have to go hunting around for them. Not sure how the publishers of this list will update it (will they update the post? that doesn't seem ideal), but this is pretty handy.
