That's great!  Thanks for the link brotherS.  It keys into the kinds of discussion they have over on 37signals' excellent blog, Signal Vs Noise: http://www.37signals.com/svn/

This is a subject that I've become very interested in: how to reduce to essences without giving away what is needed for clear communication.  But I'm coming at it more from a point of view of life than of design.

Having grown up in South Africa, we had even less choice than England - I was a little shocked on my first visit to a UK supermarket.  But not nearly as shocked as I was when trying to pick up a snack in a Manhattan drug store!

General Software Discussion / Re: GreatNews RSS Reader
« on: March 28, 2006, 10:54 AM »
I just went over to Newsgator and discovered that they released version 2.0 of FeedDemon yesterday, and have changed their subscription models also.  I've donwloaded it and it really is nice - but I'm still not sure yet whether it's $29.95 better than GreatNews!

93
Is FeedDemon really that good?  I've played with it quite a bit, but I wasn't sure at the end of all that whether it was any better than GreatNews (at many times the price!).  Again, I thought it ran quite heavy, which I really don't need in a feed reader...

94
And I think it runs a bit heavy on its own - 35mb at the moment on my system.  Nice looking - particularly like the feed history panel, which is neatly arranged and simple.  But I haven't yet found a RSS reader that beats GreatNews...

I like their EULA also:
