I love finding more open source apps and resources every single day, especially if their under MIT which is one of the least restrictive (and sometimes confusing) of the bunch of licenses available to us.

Stringer: Open Source Self-Hosted RSS Reader
As many of you I’m a huge user of RSS – I still think there’s something powerful about that protocol and unless something dramatic changes I don’t see it leaving us anytime soon.
