Bloglines.com is closing down.
According to Ask.com, the owners of Bloglines, the world is very different now from the world in which Bloglines was launched.
"The Internet has undergone a major evolution. The real-time information RSS was so astute at delivering (primarily, blog feeds) is now gained through conversations, and consuming this information has become a social experience."

Mark Pilgrim and Dave Winer are fighting, again.
It started over a remark Dave
made about various blogging services. Mark
turned around and created a bot
that reads Dave's RSS feed every 5 minutes and spits out the text, annotated to show what's been added/deleted/changed since the last time it ran. Dave's claiming copyright infringement, Mark's claiming fair use. Okay MeFi folks, which side are you on, and why?

The Disruptive Web
is an InfoWorld article about the "disruptive" power of weblogs. Combining the aggregated reading habits of the blog community collected by All Consuming
with bookmarklets and an RSS feed, the author conducted an experiment to search for the availability of blog-popular books at local libraries. "By the end of the day, the technique was verified to work with many libraries in the United States. What's more, it had mutated. Reports came in from around the world about adaptations that worked with library systems from other vendors." link via post atomic

Dave Winer's not happy
about the fact that people are tweaking the orange XML icon
used to link RSS/RDF feeds. You've seen that orange button saying XML at various sites, including MeFi. Milo
just put up one saying RSS instead of XML, which was based on a point brought up by xiffix
, "In hindsight, appropriating the global acronym XML for this narrow use was a mistake. The button should say RSS. Hopefully, people will take Dave’s suggestion to do something completely different to heart and abandon the Userland attempt at a standard icon"
