Thread: What would news do?
Andrew Barron's response:

On just this topic, wondering myself why Google killed their Reader, its kinda interesting that Google hasn't provided any significant rationale. Especially after so many people have spoken up.

From what they have said, it seems clear that Google thinks RSS is dying because its looking at usage stats from its Reader, but the problem is that Google's reader sucks so bad, its the product that is dying, not the medium. This is obviously why so many other companies are jumping in.

Re: Google's perspective, I figured it ultimately had to do with G+. For just that reason, Ive been going back to G+ to try to understand how they expect that to work, but so far, they have not provided a feature set that is an adequate replacement. On the contrary, I asked the folks who circled me on G+ to let me know if they are receiving my updates, and in fact, the majority are not receiving my posts. Its the same for me too. I am following a lot of people on G+ who put out updates, links, news, etc. that are literally invisible to me. If I dont think to go look for them, I will probably never see them again.

But as we know from Twitter, which is still in the news, Twitter is not a useful tool for doing the kind of activity we do when we publish and read news via RSS either. This is because, of course, people who publish on Twitter, also chat, and the noise is practically gone 10min later.

Imagine if we still had a good Technorati. That would prob be considered a more influential place to be marked than by the number of RT on Twitter you get. Because after all, Twitter prefers to promote the Mashable and HuffPo versions of everyone's blog posts.

Distracting chatter is useful. But thanks to RSS (remember that?) it’s optional. « Jon Udell
Jon Udell had the same moment I had a few months back where I grew tired of the chatter and missed really solid writing and well thought through ideas shared and went back to my RSS reader and found the land of "ah this is better".
