I was taking a brief break from work and was scanning through SharpReader to catch up on news, politics, tech stuff, etc. I ran across this post from the RSS godfather about his water company having an RSS feed. My first thought was "hmm.... that's interesting", but my second thought was "hmm... I haven't been to the Scripting News website in forever." And why would I? He's got a great, full-feed RSS... and even the comments come into the aggregator. So really, the actual page offers me almost NOTHING.
As a designer, the prospect of my web design being irrelevant is disheartening, to say the least. But honestly, it seems like the only thing a blog needs is a page with an "RSS" button on it. Heck, you might as well just redirect to the Feedburner page, because that's already presentable. I realize that the days of aggregator-only "surfing" are still WAY in the future... but as I've gotten more into SharpReader, I find that Firefox is being used less-and-less. I wonder if there are any RSS-only blogs out there?
