No algorithms  ↦

Brent Simmons:

I’ve been asked a few times about using algorithms in NetNewsWire to bring articles you wouldn’t otherwise have seen — from outside your feeds list — to your attention.

I’ve also been asked a similar question about using algorithms to bring articles — from inside your feeds list — to the top based on the likelihood that they’ll interest you.

I’m not going to do either.

Good for him.

This is what Twitter and Facebook are about — but it’s not right for NetNewsWire. The app puts you in control.

This is what I love about the spirit of RSS readers. More like this, please!
