Quick RSS observation

It seems FeedBurner is having some issues today.

So at lunch today, my usual but infrequent time for perusing my too-large subscription list in Google Reader, I was only able to read the full entries on about 25% of the blogs I read. It appears that their link redirector (and recorder) was not working for me… so URLs such [as this](http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/subtraction/~3/180365460/1105_manhattan_in.php) wouldn’t work.

Not knocking FeedBurner but a couple of observations:

* The Internet is all about **not centralizing** and it’s more robust for it
* With FeedBurner becoming a central source for RSS feed serving, it becomes a pretty critical piece of infrastructure for a lot of folks

Nothing terribly insightful…
