RSS aggregation will not change all, but there is reason the believe that
the importance of the home page is declining.
I aggregate, comment, syndicate and share close to 100 RSS feeds from my
Drupal driven blogging site. It is a personal thing, and yet I have a couple
hundred users a day. I really appreciate the way RSS can work.
We have not heard the last about syndication.
It has close ties with personal knowledge and content management, the
semantic web and such.
