Reclaiming RSS

“Before Twitter, before algorithmic timelines filtered our reality for us, before surveillance capitalism, there was RSS: Really Simple Syndication … As we move away from the centralised web to the peer web, it’s time to rediscover, re-embrace, and reclaim RSS.”



@aral ... and, looking at my blog roll, a load of people who used weblogs and RSS in the early 2000s gradually moved to Twitter because it provided something weblogs, pingbacks, RSS and comments never managed to provide: An easy way of publishing content, same as an easy way of interacting with users (as in discussions and comments). We should not re-embrace or reclaim RSS. We rather should look at why quite some people gave up on these technologies in order to improve them... 😉
