Yeah, really he's not.
Olympia Online RSS is a sweet idea.
A bit... uh... janky, but it does the job ok. Its basically a feed aggregator for a handful of blogs in Olympia, a lot like feedtacoma.com, but that website is less on the janky side.
The arrival of Olympia Online RSS is hilarious because of Jason (enpen)'s reaction to a similar effort by Rick over at Olyblog. Read here.
S6 over at Olyforum does a really good job at not really getting it here as well.
The whole thing drives off the RSS course very quickly into Rick and Jason's personal issues with each other, but Jason's initial point of "using my rss feed on your site is wrong" is very wrong on its own.
It is not stealing content. There are spam blogs out there that blatantly copy content from rss feeds, but neither what Rick is doing at Olyblog nor Olympia Online RSS are doing that. They're linking. Automatically linking, but linking in any form is good.
Thesis 7: Hyperlinks Subvert Hierarchy
The ability of the internet to link to additional information – information which might exist beyond the formal hierarchy of organizational structure or published material from such an organization – acts as a means of subverting, or bypassing, formal hierarchies.
