Geeking with Greg: RSS was designed by geeks for geeks

source: above
I think next-generation RSS readers will have to get past exposing RSS feeds. Readers just want to read news. All the magic of locating the content needs to be hidden. It all needs to just work.

Amen to that ! 

Next time some geek comes up with a perfectly rational reason not to agree to standardize on a subscription mechinism, somebody should make him write "It all needs to just work" 1000000 times.
