The Rise and Demise of RSS

The Rise and Demise of RSS: Motherboard

I’m a huge fan of RSS and have been for probably more than 20 years.

If you’re a podcast listener, you’re also a fan of RSS but maybe you don’t know it. I think Dave Winer once said that podcasts without RSS are not podcasts.

Much of the tech world moved to Twitter, but the drinking from a firehose nature of Twitter doesn’t provide time to understand and reflect on news. Curating a list in an RSS reader gives you a much better sense of issues in the news and elsewhere.

Try it out. Your sanity will thank you.
