  • Many paths to information

    Posted on December 21st, 2005 Alan No comments

    I enjoyed subscribing to Tim Hussey’s blog while it lasted. He has a lot of good stuff to say.  It was the first feed I tried that had embedded ads. I’m not going to criticize the practice or the business of placing ads in RSS feeds. Certainly it is the author’s prerogative. However, with so many feeds to choose from, I choose to not degrade my experience by having to navigate through ads. Seems to defeat the whole purpose of using an aggregator to "save time" in consuming information.  As long as there are alternatives, I also will make it a policy to not subscribe to feeds containing ads.  The blogsphere is great isn’t it?  So many choices it starts working like the Internet infrastructure itself, many paths to getting to the same place; or in my case, the same information.
