Really Simple Subscription?

This post is kind of cool. Even though the techie in me recoiled when I read the first sentence “RSS sucks”. But it got my interest. The author is right. Here are his recommendations:

– Call it subscription (almost any one who subscribed to anything before will understand this)

– Tell people that they need a reader to read the content ( I think email clients will evolve to support this automatically, some already do)

– Provide a simple iTunes style interface to “Search, Browse, Recommend, Remix”

The last bullet crys out for a product. Build an AJAX based iTunes style interface to Search. Browse, Recommend, Tag, Remix and Re-blog (I added a couple of my wish list items).

Now I need to get back to read the other couple of links Scott pointed out in his entry.
