On RSS readers and the much exaggerated “death” of RSS

To clarify: I don’t think RSS is dead either, and didn’t mean to suggest as much. Certainly RSS is not dead as a technology: the popularity of podcasts, as Brent Simmons points out in another response to my piece, ensures that, as well as the fact that it’s the foundation of news-reading apps like the forthcoming Apple News. RSS is as much a backbone technology as HTML is. I use RSS readers on my Mac, iPad, and iPhone every day—but then again, my job also involves keeping close tabs on the news.
