What Took So Long? (news feeds pt 1)

News on the Homepage

One of the motivating ideas behind Linkspank is that, when it comes to finding and sharing new stuff on the web, too many things are harder than they need to be. One of these way-too-hard things is reading news from a variety of sources by the use of feeds.

I could speak for an hour about news feeds (RSS feeds), sharing my relatively unique views. But suffice it to say that today we threw up a test of an original idea: give the user feeds! Don't make it just "easy" (because there is no easy way to choose a bunch of feeds), make it "done." With better versions of done to come.

We'll see how that goes. Not a huge change but I am excited about it as I am about everything.
