Is RSS dying?
So today I open up my RSS reader (I migrated to Newsblur after Google killed Reader) and I’m browsing my usual feeds — including Dilbert when I see this:
Grrr! Even after checking the website and going to the official feed it’s still broken and the worst is that Scott Adams has decided to do this on purpose in some sort of perverse and misguided attempt to drive traffic to their website.
You can’t beat the internet and geeks though and of course now there are alternative feeds like this one from Kimmo Suominen which completely fix things and made the Dilbert move seem even like a move by the pointy head boss because it’s been worked around already.
Seriously though, why is such a great open standard like RSS not being respected more, is it because everyone uses Facebook for their updates and it’s only us geeks still using RSS?
