Bloglines updating

I say "familiar" after reading about the future plan for Bloglines - fewer features and more ads.To me, this indicates a shift in focus, from "user as customer" to "user as product" (meaning, "what's good for me" versus "what's good for them") - which gives me zero incentive to use it anymore*.After evaluating a few alternatives, I switched to Netvibes.And now that I've invested a month tweaking it and getting comfortable with it, the idea of switching again - even back to something "familiar" - is just not appealing and I'm not going to do it.Unofficial or not, @bloglines did exactly what I would have expected an organization to do - respond quickly and helpfully.This is what librarians do, and it reminded me of Kate's post about their library suggestion box.But I bet there are some libraries already doing this very thing.

**Sunday hours might be a bad example - we could be open only even-numbered Sundays in odd-numbered years when the temperature is greater than the square root of 1764, and we'd still be busy.

I found an @bloglines user, but even though he's using the Bloglines logo, he indicates it's not an official Bloglines account.

I asked him my question anyway (noticing he was fielding the exact same question a lot lately), and got a reply in .

I'm hoping someone will take over Bloglines and continue it, but just in case, I've been testing replacements and thought I would share my findings.

(I've heard that RSS readers are a thing of the past, but I have also heard the same thing about email, radio, and libraries, which are also things I use almost every day.) Anyway, the two I looked at were Tiny Tiny RSS (tt-rss) and Net Vibes.

By now you've probably read other peoples' laments about Bloglines closing down.

One thought on “bloglines updating”

  1. However, this causes a problem for those who believe based on the Bible that life has only existed on the earth for a few thousand years, since fossils are found in rocks that are dated to be over 500 million years old by radiometric methods, and some fossils are found in rocks that are dated to be billions of years old.
