Hey Dave,

I like your insight on the dynamics of the feed. I don't think the platform in itself is anything unique or special as it's just another Web 2.0 API, but creating a news stream of all of your friends' activities is indeed revolutionary. I remember the uproar it caused initially, but it's become the finger to the pulse of Facebook.

In the future it's foreseeable that Facebook might develop into a peer news network (i.e. news about your peers) more than a peer communication service. I wonder what kind of social engineering impact it might have...

Dave, you hit the nail on the head.

How is it possible that most of the world doesn't 'get' RSS or feeds, but when you look at it in a very simple way ("people see shit other people are doing in the Feed, and then they click on that shit.") it becomes crystal clear.

Thank you for a fantastic observation.

I think the more that people become used to feeds (in their email, on their PDAs or on the web) the more they'll be addicted. I am, having worked with Attensa for a few months on their enterprise 2.0 RSS platform.

The cool thing? From safe, inside the firewall, you can have the same kind of interaction and attention that millions of people turn to Facebook every day for - what's the shit today?

Cheers, and thanks for your perspective.

I totally agree - sometimes you just have to break it all the way down for people to understand.

Its RSS feeds in a roach motel for people who can't figure out RSS.
