The Rise and Demise of RSS
This version of events is far too kind to Winer.
He has done as much to sabotage RSS as promote it.
RSS is for sharing but only _his_ way. q.v. 17 U.S.C. 101, et seq.

Winer, in a message to me, said that he was not trying to control RSS and just wanted to use it in his products.
Rot and rubbish.

Ask Tim OReilly or Rogers Cadenhead, both of whom were once staunch defenders of Winer, what their lasting impression of him is.
Or work backwards from "17 U.S.C. 101, et seq...

F8: Developers trust that Facebook, and “Mark” will do the right thing — Quartz
> There are few properties on the web as dominant as Facebook, leaving developers without much choice on what platforms to build for. “If my customer wants to use Facebook Workplace or any of the Facebook products, integrated into our product, and there’s a real business opportunity for us to do it, we will do it, but with complete open conversation and transparency and customers,” Sethi said.

"Sure, it's unethical and immoral, but look at the profits!"

Internet addiction: How do you treat addiction when abstinence isn't an option? — Quartz
> One of the key steps in treating any internet-based addiction, he says, is to figure out the impulses driving such behavior. Are patients distracting themselves with games as a soothing coping mechanism, or are they seeking the buzz of a reward from each new like on Twitter? Just as there are different emotional impulses behind the alcoholic who goes to a bar to be sociable and the one who drinks spirits at home alone, it’s important to understand the emotional desires behind the addiction.

>In order to both limit your internet activity and replace it with something more satisfying, Graham suggests that rigorous scheduling can help to replace online behavior with more positive activities. “Make sure you don’t just slide into another evening of social media or blogging and suddenly, there’s another day gone,” he adds.
