Syndication Schmyndication

Increasingly, I believe the RSS publishing/aggregating model we have today is...not quite right. And it will become more broken as it is pushed in different ways. I think syndication on the web is extremely interesting. But, alas, RSS!=syndication. Someone could come along and figure it all out (or, more likely, the iterative improvement process from all the people innovating in the space will figure it out). But I don't believe the increasingly foregone conclusion that the thing blog geeks and information junkies are doing today with their RSS readers is going to be standard for web users and publishers.
