Comments, Links

General commentary on contemporary Internet issues:

  1. RSS is too close to regular ol' XHTML with Netscape-style subscriptions. For this reason, it will never catch on unless it changes radically.
  2. If the New York Times adopted micropayments (a la 25 cents per older article; heck, maybe even a dollar) they would take off in popularity.
  3. The new Blogger features rock. i'm still looking forward to entry templates, as yet unimplemented.
  4. Whoever comes up with an authentification method for e-mail that eliminates spam will become a worldwide celebrity and possibly a millionaire. Regular e-mail would then become like what Usenet newsgroups are today.
