Gmail and Atom

So, I'm in my gmail account minding my own business and I spot an Atom icon. Being a click-me, click-me kinda guy, I click and get


<feed version="0.3">
<title>Gmail - Inbox for sean.mcgrath@gmail.com</title>
<tagline>New messages in your Gmail Inbox</tagline>
<link rel="alternate" href="http://gmail.google.com/gmail" type="text/html"/>

</feed>


Okay. So I cannot get Bloglines to like it and the help on gmail draws a blank and where/how will I encode the authentication info anway plus its https and...and...

its all very interesting.

I sense a mind bender creeping over the horizon.

Like last night when I listened to someone say - completely seriously -

    "Computational properties of nervous tissue."

That sort of mind bender.

Gmail + Atom/RSS. The death knells of POP3/IMap4? The Web claims another protocol victim?

Remember NNTP?
