I invited on executives from four of my favorite readers: NewsGator, Attensa, Rojo and Feedlounge. We discuss features, who’s fastest, and whether Feedlounge can sustain its fee model (it is the only online reader that charges users). At one point, Greg Reinacker, the Founder and CTO of NewsGator, mentions that they saw a 30% growth in users in March alone. Clearly, we are at the very beginning of RSS adoption.
