inessential: Oh God Not This Again
"In a nutshell: judging RSS itself because RSS readers are not mainstream is to miss everything that RSS does. And judging RSS readers for not being mainstream is to judge them against expectations set by some hype artists more than a decade ago — but not by me or anybody else actually doing the work...

It’s 2018, and I think by now we’re allowed to have things that some people like, but that not everybody uses." (This is good, even as someone who admittedly is Always Going To Like It)

"FeedTools is a simple Ruby library for handling rss, atom, and cdf parsing, generation, and translation as well as caching. It attempts to adhere to Postel’s law—i.e. a liberal parsing and conservative generation policy." Wasn't aware of this until now, remarkably.

Rososo, the peaceful newsreader
"Rososo shows you which bookmarks have updated, and hides the rest. It is a good alternative to newsreaders, which, like your email inbox, tend to accumulate obligation and guilt." Not sure about only showing sites, rather than content, but I like the idea of peaceful software a lot.

may 2007 by infovore Weblog: Comments for 'NetNewsWire 2.1: Sorting by Attention'
Impressive; NNW 2.1 can sort feeds by the attention you pay them. This is the real impact of the attention economy - not securitizing it, not monetizing it, just using attention as a resource like anything else, and making your tools better as a result
