NewsGator announced today that it has acquired NetNewsWire, the most popular Mac-based RSS reader. Also, in May 2005, NewsGator acquired FeedDemon And NewsGator shipped their Enterprise Server product on Friday.

Why all this activity? Well, according to Brad Feld, it’s because they are building a platform play in RSS. Read Brad’s post to see some interesting stats and analysis on how all this could play out between Blogline, Yahoo and the ever more ubiquitous NewsGator. Will be interesting to see how this all develops.

And thanks much Brad for the nice mention of our book. Go NewsGator go!
