TechCrunchIT recently posted (about 45 minutes ago) about the death of RSS, essentially highlighting a trend of people migrating away from feed readers like Google Reader to more real-time information like Twitter and FriendFeed.

I’ve thought about this trend recently, wouldn’t this be solved by Google Reader adding a real-time feed, so new stories come in as they’re posted.

Admittedly it wouldn’t solve the content discovery problem, as the real-time feed would only be for the feeds you’ve subscribed to.

Perhaps they could add a trending topics or suggested blogs module on the side ?

Anyone from Google reading this ? Google Reader is great, but it’s time for an update.
