Indieweb and Feeds
If this article about feeds on the IndieWeb wiki represents their philosophy, then their name is wrong — they’re not about independence, because feeds give us independence.
The article criticizes RSS and Atom for a few reasons, and those reasons are easy enough to swat away that I leave that as an exercise for the reader.
What gets me is where it notes some shutdowns: Google Reader, Apple removing RSS from Mail and Safari, Twitter removing feeds, etc.
RSS is at its most interesting and useful when big companies ignore it. It’s the domain of indie developers.
