RSS? We don't need no stinkin' RSS

I love this photo that Brain Traffic has labeled "RSS in the olden days."

When did we get away from the idea that serving readers was a key job, even if it meant posting the news in the window?

I guess this might also be a metaphor for paywalls.

When journalists decided that the public (the audience, the customers, the readers, whatever) was not people whose actions they were recording, but ignoramuses who failed to see the right road and needed to be constantly educated.

It is appalling that people are believing some of the junk being spread around. It is understandable to me that they believe this rather than listen to a medium that tells them, "You people are idiots."
