Whither RSS

OK, what is it?
RSS Is Dead, So Is The RSS Fund
“Three months ago, Steve Gillmor wrote that “it’s time to get completely off RSS and switch to Twitter.” Sam Diaz piled on last week, calling RSS a Web 1.0 application whose time has passed. And things got even worse today, when news leaked that former Feedburner chief Dick Costello has agreed to join Twitter as chief operating officer.”
RSS isn’t Dead (Just Ask Executives)
“It’s become fashionable among a certain set to declare that RSS is no longer the foremost pipeline for news and information on the Web. . . . RSS racked up quite a bit of support from the executives, coming in third after blogs and video sharing sites. While Steve Gillmor and others may have kicked RSS to the curb in favor of Twitter and other tools, people outside the sphere of early adopters are getting a lot of rewards from RSS still.”
As an RSS addict I hope I don’t have to go into detox any time soon. From a library perspective I find RSS much simpler to adopt and manage than Twitter style.
