I was having breakfast with Guy Kawasaki when Dave Winer called. I hit ignore cause it’s rude to talk on the phone when you’re having breakfast. Anyway, when the breakfast was done I listened to the voice mail where Dave told me about a little experiment of his http://techcrunch.scripting.com (try it on your mobile phone, compare to the original TechCrunch).
Now, a little bit about that first. A few days ago I was complaining to Dave about various bloggers who make their blogs impossible to read on cell phones. TechCrunch was one of the worst. It takes two minutes to load and even then it isn’t really usable due to having to scroll around the navigation stuff.
So, what did Dave do? He said that he could give me a server-side-RSS version.
This rocks. Rocks. Rocks. Now I can read TechCrunch while walking around tonight’s TechCrunch party.
I hope Dave wraps up this server-side aggregator and gets every blogger to implement it so I can read every blog on my phone.
Thanks Dave for scratching my itch.
