Also apropos of feed readers, I've just rediscovered [NetNewsWire]( How awesome that @brentsimmons has kept it alive (and still free!) after all this time.
@KFitz NetNewsWire may be one of the rarest beasts of all in that it’s an old web project, like, which was sold off to one or more companies, but later repurchase and revitalized by its original creator. I hope we see more of this in the coming years.

Since acquiring NetNewsWire from Newsgator in 2011, we’ve invested a great deal in the continued development and support of the product…
Awesome to see the project come back to the original developer who still wants to shepherd it.

After some years spent traveling the world, NetNewsWire is now back where it started! It’s my app again. We’ve kept its room ready for all these years. And I am thrilled to welcome it home. Thanks to Black Pixel

Read NetNewsWire Status Report: the Last 10% (
I’ve been working on this app — originally Evergreen 1.0, now NetNewsWire 5.0 — for four years, at least. And now GitHub tells me that the 5.0 alpha milestone is 91% complete. Which means, yes, I’m down to that last 10%. Old engineering wisdom says that the last 10% takes as much time as the first 90%, which means I have another fours year to go, and it will ship in late 2022.
