Why I still use RSS – Marc cdevroe.com

@cdevroe I love RSS for all the same reasons, and am in the process of moving as much over to it as possible. Not only does it curate and control what I see, but I can use the same app (Reeder) to do it.

@peterimoore RSS helps keep you less invested in specific platforms too. For example, if you follow all YouTube channels by RSS instead of subscribing in the app, it doesn’t matter where the videos actually come from. You could just as easily follow someone on Vimeo (or any other video service) as follow someone on YouTube.

@cdevroe I'm still an RSS consumer as well. I'm always super disappointed when I cannot follow feeds.

This is a good point.

At this point, my main source of inspiration, information, and news is RSS. I am not even reading news websites.

@cdevroe I’ve unsubscribed from some of the news aggregator sites like Arstechnica that I subscribed to, too much noise. I figure I follow enough people in the tech world that I’ll find out if something big happens anyway. Now I need to stop watching news on TV.

@peterimoore I haven't been watching any news. I love it. In fact, the other day my wife says to me “Bezos is retiring from Amazon CEO”. I had no idea. And I thought that was terrific!

@cdevroe I heard about that on the radio at work, so I dismissed feeling bad or overwhelmed as I didn’t go looking for it.

More importantly, I dismissed it as I couldn’t care less. 😂
