Bloglines – Online RSS Feed Reader Service

Just wanted to point out a great online RSS reader service. http://www.bloglines.com/. It’s not new or anything. I’ve been using it for almost 2 years, and the service has been around for at least a couple more. But for anyone who isn’t aware of it’s existence, check it out.

What is Bloglines? It’s an online RSS feed aggregator. I never used to be much of a believer in online services like this, particularly because the user experience of web-based applications has always been sub-standard when compared to a rich Windows-based application. But web applications are getting much better (the newer beta version of Bloglines is pretty good), and the benefits of a cloud-based service like Bloglines are hard to deny, since your personal news feeds will be available to you from any internet-connected device with a web browser.

Cloud-based services like Bloglines (and a whole slew of other services some of which already exist and some of which are yet to be developed) will clearly play a major role in how people interact with their computers in the next decade.
