The Rise and Demise of RSS

Great post on the history of RSS:

There are two stories here. The first is a story about a vision of the web’s future that never quite came to fruition. The second is a story about how a collaborative effort to improve a popular standard devolved into one of the most contentious forks in the history of open-source software development.

I still use RSS everyday. It’s my preferred way of reading news. Feedbin for syncing and managing feeds, Reeder for iOS, and Readkit for MacOS.
