Rss

RSS, I can't quit you.

On occasion my blog posts receive outside attention, like when a piece get’s featured on a more popular website. For instance I was quoted in an article over at the register last week, and that catapulted my stats for a day. Regardless of what drives traffic to my blog, most readers of my blog seem interested in RSS. That is fine with me, because I like talking about the finer points of RSS just like everyone else.

I have to say it, RSS is not dead.

When I read about the death of RSS, I laugh, but I think the point is we need a new platform to consume RSS. It needs to cater to curators, and hubs of influential people. To some degree Facebook has become a kind of RSS reader, but the king of RSS readers is Google Reader, and we need a new version. It’s hard to think of a way to make Google Reader better.
