Digg, the collaborative news monster that has been around for years, is now working on a Feeds reader (www.digg.com/reader) that can replace Gogole Reader, according to their blog
They do not believe that RSS is a thing of the past, and they demonstrate it convinced that it is a product worth saving with this paragraph:
[…] We have been planning to build a reader in the second half of 2013, which, like Digg, will make the Internet more accessible and easier to digest. Following Google’s announcement, we are taking the project to the top of our priority list. We are going to build a reader, starting today.
They hope to identify and rebuild the best of Google Reader’s features (including its API) and move forward to make it fit for the 2013 website.
[…] where networks and communities like Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Reddit, etc. They also offer interesting content.
They ask for our help to indicate functionalities.
What problems should be solved? What is useful? What would you like to be able to do that you can’t today?
I mentioned it yesterday and I repeated it today: To create a new Google Reader, you need a giant behind that can absorb the load of millions of users by consulting information. And Digg knows a lot about that.
