Easy RSS

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

RSS is ridiculously easy to create. Here's a Perl script that will create an RSS feed from a tab separated document. It should be available to everyone, without the need for a specialized blogging application.

Change Your RSS Feed?

Tony Karrer

A while ago, I created a feedburner feed for this blog so I could add lots of stuff to the feed - most importantly I publish a daily summary of my new links. It appears that most people still point to my Blogspot feed.

It provides a widget that allows you to show your top posts for month or year. You can see what it thinks are mine in the right column of the blog.

The Father of All Business Models

Doc Searls

One of the most widespread of those, thanks to Dave, is RSS — Really Simple Syndication. Look up RSS on Google. Much of that huge number owes to RSS’s nature as essential builing material for the Web that anybody can use, easily. RSS is easy to make yours , personally, as your tool. That costs more.

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. As I mentioned, I use RSS most of all. Blogger produces an RSS feed for each, and these feed into my other services. I need it.

Alas, Twitter posts tend to be snow on the water, flowing to near-oblivion and lacking syndication through RSS —though there are hacks.).

Let’s pull news out of its hole

Doc Searls

This is why RSS works so well. Most of what we call news is filler. The Internet obsoleted all of it, including the frame of news as filler. There is no hole. The river is a good metaphor for what news is, and should be. Sometimes it’s a trickle, sometimes a flood. But it always flows. With news rivers, destinations are personal.
