I found this claim interesting, especially from the perspective of my talk today: "We consume the web from mobile devices, we discover content on silo-ed social networks and, more importantly, the base metaphor for the web is shifting from space to time." It's not unusual, though, to hear this perspective with respect to RSS; it reminds me of Dave Winer's 'river of news' concept. The otbher thing, of course, is the renewed interest in RSS from Medium, which is a rapidly growwing platform in its own right. But with Superfeedr, and especially PubSubHubbub, Medium is acquiring a whole distribution network.
