RSS turns 20 →

Dave Winer:

I announced here on Scripting News that the final RSS 2.0 spec was out. But! — no one had a problem with it. I guess we were ready to go to the next stage, with a clear way forward. And RSS would go on to eat the world, to steal a phrase from a well-known tech pioneer.

I started using RSS via Safari when macOS Tiger was released in April 2005. I then moved to NetNewsWire in March 2006 when the number of feeds was slowing my browser. My news, blog, and web reading have changed for the better. I now use Reeder on all my devices via Feedbin sync.

Cheers to Dave for creating RSS and another 20 years of a decentralized web.
