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.
