Why use RSS for
Authored by: sjk on Feb 06, '06 12:17:07PM

It's quicker for me to scan the feed for this site (and many others) and only open articles I'm interested in (typically with Safari or NNW tabs), when their titles are informative enough to make that choice (which is true here).

In general, using feeds as a site monitoring/filtering tool is a convenient way to prioritize and later catch up with certain content over different periods of time. It's taken time to develop effective strategies for doing that and it's an evolving process but I dread to imagine how clumsy and inefficient it would be without feeds. That would kind of be like using dialup after having tasted broadband bandwidth.
