Today, a third party presented their service offering via web conference. Afterwards, the phone call finished but they forgot to stop screen-sharing.
We watched as the presenter clicked from their PowerPoint presentation to their web browser, where they un-paused a computer game and continued to play. It was like we were witnessing The Website is Down.
What about, instead of calling it Google Reader and RSS, it’s called Google Dashboard and a Dashboard Feed, and whenever you’re on someone else’s site, there’s an option to “Add to My Dashboard”. Would that make more sense to the everyperson?
Also: I wonder if RSS will ever accept other attributes so that everyone can style their feeds individually. Get some character back into the thing.
