Fever° From Shaun Inman

Shaun Inman launched Fever today, a re-imagined feed reader. The big dif­fer­ence between Fever and other prod­ucts like Google Reader, is that it is designed to help float impor­tant or trend­ing links and dis­cus­sions to the top. So rather than read­ing through hun­dreds of posts to find what’s hot, Fever ana­lyzes all of your feeds, and looks for re-linking and repeat references.

I haven’t yet sprung for a license, (mostly because there isn’t any offline caching so that I can read on the sub­way). But, there is a lovely look­ing iPhone-optimized site, and it looks as thought­fully and lov­ingly designed as his web ana­lyt­ics prod­uct, Mint.

Be sure to watch the video demo, and note that Fever is not a hosted service—you have to install it on your own server.

  • Biggest prob­lem is that you need to have domain name for Fever to run on – it’s not enough to run it on a com­puter and access via its IP address. As far as I can tell this is an anti-piracy tac­tic. Surely there must be bet­ter alter­na­tives than this. Fur­ther to this – two emails to the author have gone unread in over 2 week. I’ll cer­tainly be keep­ing my $30 and not deal­ing with this devel­oper. Ever.

  • He’s a good dude, sorry it’s not for you. Not for me, either, but Mint is great.
