@gsteenss Did it ever go away? Or am I just that distant from the regular world?
nope, it never did. but some people may need a reminder it solves heluva lot of their current problems...
@jaan_paul That's probably true. :)
@gsteenss but why would we use rss instead of atom tho
that article literally links to its own atom feed, calling it rss 🤔
@gsteenss I hadn't noticed it was gone ..
This id the bit that clicked for me in the article:
Makes even more sense to me now - no additional malicious software if it all conforms to an accepted and safe standard.
@gsteenss RSS is my jam, partly because it's janky old tech that can't really be easily monetized or tracked.
@gsteenss absolutely. And so I do use RSS. But there's natural resistance to it and willingness to kill it by advertisers & co. So that's just another fight which might be refueled...
And I'm personally fully for RSS. 😀
@gsteenss the thing with RSS is it encourages me to spend even more time than i currently do (already an unhealthy amount) consuming content online. so while the idea appeals to my knowledge hoarding tendencies i can't make RSS be healthy for me.
@gsteenss and you read mastodon through rss ;-)
@gsteenss And Tiny Tiny RSS is a cool RSS Reader. https://www.hasecke.eu/post/tiny-tiny-rss-shaarli/
@gsteenss RSS is still my favorite way of subscribing to blogs and webcomics
