problems with RSS aggregators

Posted on Aug 25, 2002

RSS aggregators are very fashionable right now. Having toyed with AmphetaDesk, RadioUserland and NetNewsWireLite, I'm struck by problems with them all:

  • many RSS feeds don't actually include the information that the reader wants to read,

  • the information is presented in a form chosen by the aggregator author (NetNewsWireLite and, to a lesser extent RadioUserland).
