Lifestream.fm recently launched into beta, so far I have to say, this is the best “life streaming” service I have found. However, it has tough competition with FriendFeed, SocialThing, and others. Lifestream.fm offers users the ability to aggregate numerous services such as Del.icio.us, Twitter, YouTube, Flickr, Vimeo, Pownce, Tumblr, and many others. It also allows you to aggregate numerous RSS feeds.
The really cool thing about Lifestream.fm is that it is built on the same user-interface as Twitter, which makes it extremely easy to use. You can follow people just like on Twitter and they can do likewise. Users can provide some information about themselves, just as they do on Twitter.
What’s missing? The ability to post directly to any of your networks or on their network alone. FriendFeed allows users too post messages on their site, as well as, replying to your friends Tweets. I am sure something very similar is soon to come from the Lifestream team, I can’t wait to see their progress.

Editor's Note: With lifestreaming and profile aggregation a hot topic lately coupled with the growing number of social networks, managing all those connections can be a lot of work. This has created a market for lifestreaming sites like sociathing! which I highlighted previous as they demoed at TECH cocktail Boulder. Dustin Mooney, an 18 year old senior in high school, offered his SOMEWHAT FRANK opinion on the new startup called Lifestream.fm as a SOMEWHAT FRANK guest authors. Dustin writes his on blog about news, tech and life called Dustin's Dispatch that is worth checking out.
