Design vs. syndication

This site has been getting mentioned in some good company lately.

Merci beaucoup to Emmanuel Clèment who likes the new sci-fi theme.

Ralf Graf lists this site as a source of inspiration alongside places like K10K. Vielen Dank, Ralf; sehr nett von dir.

What’s wierd is that Jeffrey Zeldman also names this site in the same sentence as K10K calling both “design-oriented, visually striking sites”.


Unfortunately, the rest of the entry is an argument against providing RSS feeds at sites like this. All is forgiven, though: he relents and starts rolling his own RSS feed a few entries later.

Personally, I really like using the RSS feed provided by K10K. I can keep track of the short little snippets in the newsposts box on the front page without having to go to the site and resize my browser window just to make it all fit.

I still visit the site when there’s a new issue available, which I’ll know about straight away, of course, thanks to the same RSS feed.

RSS rocks, Jeffrey; don’t try to fight it.

I, for one, would like to welcome our new RSS overlords.
