Google Groups goes Atom


I read today on BoingBoing that the new beta of Google Groups features the ability to subscribe to Atom feeds of newsgroups. They also suggested a newsreader called Shrook (which has support for Atom feeds), but I think I’ll stick with the beta of NetNewsWire, which has support for Atom, although I had to Google for this info, as the Atom beta isn’t listed on the NNW beta page.

Of course, the really sad part is that while this is certainly one of the coolest things to happen to Usenet in a while, as a medium of discussion it is pretty much an irredeemable cesspool. I’ve subbed to the feeds of boulder.general, and nonetheless.
