Dear Akregator team,

I am a 17 year old college bound student and a huge fan of Open Source. I am writing an article about FOSS news readers, and was hoping the team members/project lead could answer a few questions I had regarding Akregator:

1.) When and why was Akregator created ?

2.) What are your views on the new wave of RSS readers like Pressboy, Lightread ? Do you regard them as competition ?

I love Akregator, it's simple and lightweight. Thank you all for taking the time to develop and maintain it !

Best,
Tushar Bhargava
