Plasticbag.org: On hybridised RSS feeds as evidence of a need for weblog refactoring…

If many people aren’t happy with reading combined feeds, isn’t the obvious solution to provide alternatives: a combined feed, a feed of just writing, a feed of just links… (like, ahem, some people do already :) ). Sure, you won’t get Feedburner stats, but if getting statistics about your readers is more important than pleasing them, that’s up to you.

One other thing to think about is the differences between weblog front pages and their feeds - traditionally the contents of these have pretty much reflected each other. But given that they’re read in very different ways perhaps it would be helpful to think about them separately. As an example — there’s more of a case for keeping the types of content in feeds distinct (separate feeds), but combining it all in one stream on your weblog front page so it doesn’t get cluttered with patches of stale content if, say, you’re only posting links for a while.

That’s lovely. Like some 1950s airbrushed vision of the future.

Well, it cements the iconic stature of the Apple MP3 players and cements the fact BBC News plainly have run out of real news. Still, this must mean there’s almost nothing nasty happening in the world that’s worth reporting, so that’s a relief.
