It just refuses to stop..... I wish I was saying this about the enthusiasm for RSS, but no. This is really pissing me off, and the kinds of non service that drives me to drooling fits of rage. They are in this dog's dog house.
So here it is for the folks at Social Text, a free ticket for a ride on a train. Get it?
