Specs should *always* be "Drop-dead serious".

And what do you mean they aren't "Fun"? Of course they are! A well-written spec is not necessarily humourless.

Are you familiar with the concept of fun, Grubs?

I'm happy that you are pushing for JSONFeed.

I'm tired of trying to get my news from Twitter. I was far better informed, in much less time, and much more efficiently, when I could use NetNewsWire to catch up on all the days news.

Looking at it every few hours, scanning all the unread headlines, and reading the details of the ones that seemed interesting was much better than what we have now, which is me seeing basically what Twitter, and Google News think I want to see.

Also, being able to use NNW's inbuilt browser, reduced unnecessary clicking away.

JSONFeed may be a way back to the good days of RSS driven consumption of news.

Agreed.

I haven't touched my Twitter account for the longest time now and am wondering whether, and when, I should close it. Meanwhile I am reaching for my RSS-reader all the time.

All I can say is, do it. You'll miss out on the "social" in "social media", but in all important respects it's just better.

How the fuck can something be both "drop dead serious" and contain intentional humour?

[This](https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc2410) is exemplary.
