RSS: The Persistent Protocol

Feld Thoughts

We made some of the early investments in companies built around RSS, including FeedBurner and NewsGator. RSS is a brilliant, and very durable, protocol. The original creators of the protocol had great vision, but the history and evolution of RSS were filled with challenges and controversy. RSS Feed Readers mostly vanished, and the feed became the “Twitter feed.” I’ve been using RSS continuously for over a decade as my primary source of information.

Using RSS To Track SEC Filings

Feld Thoughts

I considered titling this post “why RSS isn’t dead&# but decided that was too easy. I then clicked on the RSS icon in my browser and subscribed to the feed for each company I was interested in using Google Reader. I love how fundamental wiring – like RSS – is – well – fundamental. Tech I Use public companies rss secI don’t pay much attention to public markets.

Consumer RSS: 1999-2010

Venture Chronicles

paidContent made an interesting connection about Bloglines being shut down and the broader question of RSS in the age of Twitter. Indeed, in its announcement, Bloglines similarly blames broader trends for its demise, saying , “As Steve Gillmor pointed out in TechCrunch last year, being locked in an RSS reader makes less and less sense to people as Twitter and Facebook dominate real-time information flow. RSS is a means to an end, not a consumer experience in and of itself.

RSS Ads

BeyondVC

Since becoming an avid blogger and reader, it is clear to me that embedded ads in RSS feeds will be a key way for content owners to monetize their assets. First, the fact of consuming RSS feeds will typically reduce traffic at many publishers’ websites giving them less opportunity to monetize their assets. Ads in RSS will help publishers overcome the lower traffic to their sites while still providing their users with up to date content.

From RSS to Glassboard

Venture Chronicles

Marshall has been an advocate for RSS from the earliest days but he is wrong to pin the blame for consumer RSS’ demise on random factors like flash games on Facebook, the wounds here are self-inflicted for the most part. Consumer RSS apps failed to recognize that the presentation layer for feeds by itself isn’t that interesting, and neither is the repository and syncing of content aspect. Additional posts I have written on this: Is Twitter Killing RSS?

Why would you want your RSS reader to be social?

Jeff Hilimire

First question: Why would I want my RSS reader to be social? My response: Google Reader is far and away the best RSS tool, so you’ve made a good choice there. Why would you want your RSS reader to be social? Sure, they can do this by sending you an email or a Facebook message, but wouldn’t you rather get that right inside your RSS reader?

Staying close to your customers with blogs and RSS

BeyondVC

As I have said a number of times, I am a big believer that companies should start looking at how to use new technology and standards like blogs, wikis, and RSS/Atom from a product perspective and not solely for news publishing and aggregation. I certainly see a world where companies use new technology and standards like blogs, wikis, and RSS to build a relationship with its users and to empower them to participate in a company’s success.

How and Why I Still Use Delicious

Duct Tape Marketing

I still use Delicious every day to bookmark and automatically publish content to the web via RSS and I think you should too. One of the most underutilized features of the Delicious technology in my opinion is the ability to grab tag specific RSS feeds.

Really Simple Syndication

3 years and 1 day ago I wrote a introductory post about RSS. Since that time a lot has happened with RSS, but I keep referring back to that post. I don’t think I have referred to any post more than the guide to RSS and it still works even though its 3 years old. Now there are new initiatives, like RSS cloud , and perhaps RSS never really got the attention it deserves.
