Brent Simmons is druk bezig met de nieuwe versie van NetNewsWire. En daar zal het nieuws dat jij volgt nooit algoritmisch geordend gaan worden. Want:

These kinds of algorithms optimize for engagement, and the quickest path to engagement is via the drugs outrage and anger — which require, and generate, bigger and bigger hits.

This is what Twitter and Facebook are about — but it’s not right for NetNewsWire. The app puts you in control. You choose the sites and blogs you want to read, and the app reliably shows you their articles sorted by time. That’s it.

Helder. :)
