It's even worse than it appears..
The twenty-year review of RSS 2.0 is now officially underway, with the release of the reallysimple package. I know not many people are paying attention yet, but this is the beginning of a new stack of open source feed tools. By the time we get to Sept 18, a nice new barn should be raised, and RSS can begin its second twenty years with some of the broken windows fixed and a fresh coat of paint.#
I was talking with a friend from Brazil, he told me that Brazil had slavery too. I thought it was a uniquely American thing. #
Feeder is a server app that connects to reallysimple via the web. #

Calling tech products web3 or web5 is a billionaire's way of pissing on everyone else in the usual territorial way. As if to say "we can shit on the biggest open standard ever, and there's nothing you can do." Maybe so, but we don't have to buy what you're selling.#
Why not come up with a Bitcoin where proof-of-work feeds starving people or at least only uses energy from renewable sources.#
BTW, this is what a reallysimplified feed looks like. 😄#

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! :-)
