RSS Is Back From the Dead

Spotted this morning on reddit:

Could the “Followable Web” feature be a substitute for Collections? Or will it be a complement to them?

This industry is hilarious.

This isn’t new. This is RSS returning from the dead.

I was never sure why web browsers removed RSS. It was useful and well designed. It was simple and allowed users to stay up to date with web content in a decoupled fashion… at their leisure. At some point many years ago the tech industry went on a rampage against RSS. Maybe it’s because they couldn’t sell ads that are trackable and targeted for RSS users.

But here we are… RSS is back… with a new name.

This industry never gets old.
