You might know that Packet Pushers experimented with an RSS aggregation site we called Reader. We found some open source software that would render HTML pages from RSS, used it at a hosting provider we had some spare cycles with, threw a bunch of RSS feeds at it from the community, and let Reader run.
For the time being, we are discontinuing Reader.PacketPushers.net. We didn’t advertise it heavily in the past. Reader saw some traffic, but not a lot. And…we were never entirely happy with the result we got out of it. Our plan is to reboot Reader at some point in the future with new software. We still think it’s a good idea, but we want to get a more polished look and feel out of it first.
We’ve already gotten a few e-mails from folks looking for Reader now that it’s been taken offline. If you liked the site and agree that it should come back in the future, let us know in the comments. Thanks!
