A coming hiatus in webfeed aggregator use
Brian M. Dennis on a more and more apparent hiatus:
I'm starting to be persuaded by Gregory Linden's pitching of Findory as a next generation webfeed aggregator, with social intelligence baked in. I'm thinking there will eventually be a schism in how people use webfeeds somewhat similar to e-mail. There will be a teeming horde who interface relatively naively to syndicated content, maybe through a tool like Findory, ala Hotmail, Yahoo! Mail, Gmail, Outlook Express etc. etc. Then there will be a decent sized, but not huge, pool of folks who work with such content at a higher, more sophisticated level, and will need more powerful tools, e.g. NetNewsWire or Bloglines, analagous to hardcore Outlook, Eudora, and Oddpost users.
Why do I blog this? I am more and more convinced by this kind of phenomenon...
