Scripting News: Technology and evolution, day 2.#

Brent Simmons: Mark All as Read.#

FWIW, my RSS software never had unread counts. My newspaper didn't have them. I never read more than a handful of articles in any issue. If I took a vacation, I just recycled the papers that came while I was away. News is meant to slip through your fingers. That's why I always preferred the river-of-news approach. I never thought of RSS as a mail-like application.#
