RSS Changeover Day Experiences

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Well, I''ve done my duty and saved my Google RSS data, and now I''m looking for a new reader. Digg RSS Reader - [link] This is I think the one with the most promise on Day One. RSS is great for personalized links, not content factories, but Digg doesn''t even attempt recommendations.

Jay Cross's Informal Learning

I started this blog when Informal Learning was released, November 10, 2006. Join me at Internet Time Blog. That’s where I’ve blogged for more than a decade and where I engage new thoughts and interactions. Even I was getting confused about which blog to post in.

Google Blog Search Problems

Tony Karrer

I rely pretty heavily on Google Blog Search to help me find people who are citing blog posts of mine so that I can see that kind of conversation. Unfortunately, it looks like Google Blog Search has decided that they will now include the entire contents of the web page rather than just the contents of the RSS feed. What this means is that I now get links to every post where the author includes my blog in their blog roll.

Conversation Searches

Tony Karrer

What are Conversation Searches? I often present around my Information Radar tools and methods, particularly my use of an RSS Reader. During those presentations, I'll mention what are sometimes called "vanity searches." These searches look for any mention of your name, company, URLs across blogs and other sites. For me, these searches primarily allow me to see what people are saying in response to something that I've put out there.

Twitter as Search Engine or Community Seed

Nancy White

The folks over at BrandonHall, the learning folks who blog lots of interesting links, pointed out a value of Twitter that not all of us may have seen yet. Twitter as a search engine. But I never really conceptualized it as search. First, I searched for something for me.

e-Clippings (Learning As Art): Alternative and Activist Search Engines

Why Content Curation Should be in Your Skillset

Jay Cross

You expect the curator of an art gallery to know the collection and to: search out the best items. They have the same job but instead of paintings, deal with digital artifacts such as: blog posts and Tweets. I set up a Google Search for daily news on the topic.

Buzzword: Micro-learning

Xyleme

If you’re like me, you’re probably starting to get a bit tired of people adding their particular spin to learning – all in search of the holy grail that is the “right way” to make learning happen. RSS is a great example of this.

Social Media: An Interview

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

But probably the definitive date would be when I wrote An Introduction to RSS for Educational Designers in 2002 ( [link] ). I have always viewed RSS as the prototypical social media technology. RSS is to this day the technology I use to keep in touch with the network (I just channel Twitter, Facebook and other feeds through my RSS reader) and one of the major ways I keep in contact with others. As I mentioned, I use RSS most of all.

Reframing the news

Doc Searls

What made it blogging was its format: latest stuff on top and a “permalink” to every post. Alas, Twitter posts tend to be snow on the water, flowing to near-oblivion and lacking syndication through RSS —though there are hacks.). Dave created RSS — Really Simple Syndication — as we know it today , and got The New York Times and other publications (including many papers and nearly all Web publishers) to adopt it as well. For RSS it’s syndication.

Blog Post Updates - Effective Pattern?

Tony Karrer

The disadvantage is that people who subscribe to my blog will not see the information in their RSS feed or in the daily email. The other disadvantage that is completely self-serving is that each post I create has a chance to serve as bait for organic search traffic in the future. The disadvantage is that content on a topic will be scattered around on my blog. My gut tells me that this is not nearly as satisfying for search visitors.

Managing Your Blog Entry - 11 Better Tips

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

A blog entry is a stub for conversation One of the key ways to create a loyal audience for your blog is to create a community of readers who interact with each-other on your blog. This means that your blog entries should be structured in such a way that they start conversations. The point of a blog isn't to gather a loyal cadre of readers around you dutifully writing comments. And you certainly should not be writing your blog simply to entice the commenters.
