Already in the Learning Centre (see previous post) was my Newbies Guide to NetNewsWire, based on version 1 and not version 2 which, although still in beta, brings vast improvements. And mentioning NetNewsWire …
DrunkenBlog has a lengthy interview with Ranchero software’s Brent and Sheila Simmons in which he asks:
As NetNewsWire matures, is it becoming harder to be all things to all people?
And Brent replies:
If I didn’t thrive on it, probably. But this is the fun part for me. I love the challenge, I love the work — I love listening to people, hearing how they use NetNewsWire and what they want out of it.
It’s amazing how many different ways of using RSS there are. Browsers and email apps don’t have these wildly different workflows.
Is RSS like email, Usenet, chat, a web page, iCal, or iTunes? It’s like all of them and it’s like none of them: it’s its own thing. And each person uses it differently from other people. For me, that’s the exciting thing about developing NetNewsWire.
