alex king has a really good idea on his blog about having an API for centralized rss feed subscriptions, etc. including tracking which articles have been read. i, for one, think this is a great idea. since i tend to move back and forth between computers (and operating systems), i’ve taken to doing most of my RSS reading with NetNewsWire on my powerbook. this solution, however, would allow me to use straw more. which means i might be inclined to hack on it. hopefully this idea doesn’t go the way of the dodo, and alex and feedster can work out a solution.
