Am I the only person in the world to mourn the passing of NNTP? It always seemed to me that article and comment sites like slashdot or kuro5hin would fit the nntp model very well.
Instead, we have (in comparison) resource heavy websites, that, surprise, created a relatively resource light update protocol (RSS/RDF/...) in order to just get access to the information they carry.
RSS, a poor web's substitute for NNTP, IMHO.
