App.net and Feed Readers

1 minute read Published:

I wrote a guest blog post on App.net’s blog today, How App.net could be helpful to next generation RSS readers. The impact of Google Reader has gotten everyone talking about RSS readers. When I started to write the blog post for App.net something occured to me, that wasn’t appropriate for that venue. What I am struck with recently is how short messages systems like App.net have augmented feed reading. Marshall Mcluhan said, “The medium is the message”, and we are seeing the message change because we are changing our medium.
