You know, the thing about RSS is that it’s a bit like the advent of the motor car – you miss things. Just as driving around means you don’t get to pass the time of day with folk, or discover that tiny little deli you’d never notice from the road, RSS dehumanises the web.
For example, I subscribe to the blog of my good friend Nick Smith. Since he hasn’t posted about his new redesign, I didn’t know about it. Which is a shame, because I like it – it puts me in mind of Tim Burton’s animations with it’s tendril-like curves.
It just shows that every now and then you need to get out and enjoy the scenery, before it’s not there any more.
