Cry Me A River

September 12th, 2006 · No Comments

I really don't get what all the fuss is about river of news. I've been using my news aggregator on PDA's and lousy cell phone screens for about 2.5 years. I just spent an hour int he Doctor's office yesterday catching up on some news on my lousy cell phone screen (which happens to work well enough). The beauty is that I don't have to care whether someone has provided a river or stripped down view and I can view it the way I like to read news and not the way Dave thinks I should read news.

And I've said this before, if you really want to read in a river of news style then Bloglines lets you do that. Most other aggregators do as well I'm pretty sure. I just can't be bothered to waste the time to verify that myself.

So whats all the fuss and why is everyone wasting a bunch of time creating “river” views of content?? I'm sure someone will enlighten me in the comments here.
