PourOver for App.net

New from App.net: a super-simple service for publishing an RSS feed. If you’re using App.net, you can now use it to follow Daring Fireball.

(Unlike the @daringfireball Twitter feed, the App.net one points at the link destination, not the entry on Daring Fireball. That’s the downside of using an automated service like PourOver. I’m not sure there are enough people using App.net to make it worth my while to work around this.)

Update: App.net has added a new “Linked List” advanced setting that makes PourOver work properly for a feed like DF’s. Nice work. They’ve also set up this code that lets anyone sign up for a free App.net account that auto-follows @daringfireball.
