Wow. Folks are debating whether RSS is dead and there’s a new Usenet reader. Not really new…a 2.0 update of a application that frankly felt too-late when it first came out years ago.
Usenet?!? For $30, plus a monthly fee for a service if you want something usable. Seriously?!?
I was big into Usenet circa 1993-96. I have friends to this day that I first met on comp.sys.mac.* and misc.kids.* groups. There’s a fond place in my heart for community so simple, concise and text-based.
But come on, today is there more there than warez and porn? I’m not sure I want to find out.
