Chris Coyier blogged about RSS. Talking about how RSS can be social, he wrote:
How is all this social? It’s just slow social. If you want to respond to me, publish something linking to what I said. If I want to respond to you, I publish something linking to what you wrote.
“Slow social.” I liked this. So, I guess instead of tapping a heart, I’m blogging about it.
RSS feels slow and deliberate. I’ve been thinking about being more deliberate in my life, so I like that idea. Not sure I have much more to say about RSS right now, but I wonder what else can be done with it. I like Twitter mentions and replies. I think IndieWeb and services like micro.blog can support this, but honestly I need to learn more about those and how they work.
RSS is cool though. I enjoy finding blogs to subscribe to.
