indiereader was a session at Indiewebcamp Berlin discussing basic ideas behind an indiereader.
What do people use now?
- Feed readers
plumbing likely can be solved (adapting feed formats, silos)
different use cases for long-form feeds vs microblog-like things
what people want for social:
- publishing, like/reply
- clearer display of person writing content -> more important (twitter/FB like display)
- learning filters, getting rid of noise and pulling out important things (maybe adapt spamfiltering)
- recommendation engine could be outside and network with others
