BBC quotes Dave Winer on RSS news reading, likening it to choosing food from a sushi conveyor belt: "We are still waiting for the killer app though. We are
still waiting for someone to produce the software that will switch the
lightbulb on for people."
It could be that news providers are in the best position to produce that "killer app" for people. They have a chance of understanding news, but technology companies do not, says Mr Winer.
