Digg is Building a Reader ⇒

The guys at Digg:

We’ve heard people say that RSS is a thing of the past, and perhaps in its current incarnation it is, but as daily (hourly) users of Google Reader, we’re convinced that it’s a product worth saving. So we’re going to give it our best shot. We’ve been planning to build a reader in the second half of 2013, one that, like Digg, makes the Internet a more approachable and digestible place. After Google’s announcement, we’re moving the project to the top of our priority list. We’re going to build a reader, starting today.

Ever since Digg relaunched, it has become a really great product. I am very interested to see how the guys at Betaworks pull this off. I have mo doubt it will be great.

Also of note is that the new API will be based off the current one. That will make it easier for developers to implement the new syncing service.
