Feeds by email


I am a fan of feeds – RSS, Atom, etc. – a chunk of Internet commons tech which enables a thousand creative uses of any linear information source – blogs, news, alerts, etc. Since Google Reader’s death some years back there has been a quiet increase of developer activity around feeds, which is nice to see. Or maybe I’m just paying more attention! One place I do so is at r/rss, where u/ima_computa just posted about a web service they created – https://rssby.email/ which does exactly what you think it will – it sends you an email when a feed gets a new post. And all you have to do to add a feed is send it an email!

This post is mainly to trigger the service so I can see it in action.
