Over Fed

Subheading: Zeldman misses anniversary, requests wife set up RSS feed to remind him.

Before the web standards geeks skin me alive, realise this is good natured ribbing. You have to admit that the “RSS feeds solve every problem” idea may be a bit… uh… over the top, though. Please don’t turn feeds into the new email… I already get many emails a month from GoDaddy reminding me to renew my domain names, or die a slow cruel death at the hands of a minotaur. I don’t need legit uses of email in my feed reader. Here’s an idea: try a nice online calendar with notifications and possibly RSS feeds. Mark pending things in said calendar, and then you’ll have your feed, without having to wait for other developers to do it. Bam.
