@mkosler I agree. But is it dead really? I use it every day. Most sites still offer feeds. If not, there are usually workarounds. I follow Twitter users by using feeds from twitrss.me/ as an example.

@mikael @mkosler RSS is dead. It's Atom all the way now.

@jbond @mikael @mkosler I think the bleeding edge is now h-feeds, but those don't seem like the greatest idea to me;.

Gah! Just like the attempts at a JSON version of Atom/RSS, people keep trying to do this. But missing the point that a really widely supported standard trumps elegance. I know Atom/RSS has some flaws but it mostly works and there's a lot of it.
