It's even worse than it appears.
Google is apparently preparing to re-enter the market for RSS readers. Before they do, shouldn’t they explain why they dumped RSS, hurting the cause enormously, and why anyone should trust them now. If you're on Twitter please RT so users understand, they are not our friends. #
  • I recorded a 24 minute podcast about what's going on.#
  • I'm taking notes on changes, but not publishing them now, rather I'll post them all at once when it's time to open up.#
  • I talk about some of those changes in the podcast. #
  • Keep on truckin! ;-)#

You know those obnoxious sites that pop up dialogs when they think you're about to leave, asking you to subscribe to their email newsletter? Well that won't do for Scripting News readers who are a discerning lot, very loyal, but that wouldn't last long if I did rude stuff like that. So here I am at the bottom of the page quietly encouraging you to sign up for the nightly email. It's got everything from the previous day on Scripting, plus the contents of the linkblog and who knows what else we'll get in there. People really love it. I wish I had done it sooner. And every email has an unsub link so if you want to get out, you can, easily -- no questions asked, and no follow-ups. Go ahead and do it, you won't be sorry! :-)
