My favorite social network is all of us having our personal sites and being subscribed to each other's RSS feeds.
@arh Me too, it’s a great vision.
I wish there was something like RSS which functioned without a site; and you’d just put the files required up on a server and then it would just push it out to everybody like you’d expect.
@arh I'm really annoyed that Firefox removed the RSS features.
Firefox used to automatically detect RSS and present a nice page allowed you to subscribe, with easy RSS menu readily available.
@arh Absolutely. My home is my castle. And my blog is my home. Even if your home is rented, it's still your very own place. Same with servers. Only your server/rented space is yours in terms of control.
Personal site + RSS is the king. And contact via e-mail. Just works.
