or, This is an RSS love letter.
So, wanna know how lazy? So lazy that I just read a fantastic essay by Paul Graham, who has previously written other fantastic essays.... And yet, after searching all over.. I missed his RSS feed... and thought to myself, oh, I can't come here a couple times a month to find his latest -- no way popcorn -- and then I found the RSS feed.
Thank fucking goodness.
I am addicted to my aggregator.
But it dawned on me, I'm so lazy! Is this what it's come to? I find something engaging.. and won't consider reading the author consistently, unless there's an RSS feed? I was turning cycles trying to figure out how to get it... scheming... I even looked it up on a few feed services to no avail. To have to think about revisiting something I bookmarked at some forgettable day in the past? For real. Nooo way. This hand will not be clicking around websites that periodically change, the old-fashioned Web 1.0-way more than for the initial check out period, and to find the feed. I mean, who even uses bookmarks? I just use other people's del.ic.ious links or subscribe. That's when I realize, I'm spoiled. Rotten. Rotten!
Thank you NetNewsWire! I love you... I want to smooch you... Okay you have flaws but we all do... let's just surf into the sunset happily and never speak of your flaws except in a whisper... or when I get so annoyed I have to blog them.
Okay, you're wondering, what the fuck is up with her? Well, I been sick in bed for a few days... cooped up, and I'm dying to get out of here.. okay, not by that method.. this cold WILL go away! Now... I have things to do besides blogging love letters to my RSS feeds/aggregators. I'm so tired of this cold.Posted by Mary Hodder at September 29, 2004 11:23 PM | TrackBack
