RSS Behaviour Redefined: Rhizophilous Social Sources

Dan Pontefract

RSS ( known as Really Simple Syndication or occasionally as Rich Site Summary and RDF Site Summary ) is defined by PC Magazine as follows: A syndication format that was developed by Netscape in 1999 and became very popular for aggregating updates to blogs and news sites. Although I’m not advocating to actually change the RSS definition, perhaps it’s time we viewed it as more than syndication of content. Another way to view RSS is as a collaborative behaviour.

Content Curators

Dan Pontefract

As I’m fresh off my first neighbourhood block party in the Kitsilano hamlet that makes up part of Vancouver’s West Side, I got to thinking about content, curating and libraries. In a world where the pure volume of digital content swells with each passing day, we mustn’t cave into a digital only existence. But, it is often satisfied by those within my strong and weak tie network (and to a slightly lesser degree via search) that are curating the learning content in the first place.

A New Website, Part Eleven - Content Construction

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Otherwise, any new content would attempt to over-write an existing record, which generates (as it should) an error. Event Event is a content type I devoted a fair amount of time to in my previous system and haven't quite got down. Because in addition to content metadata, I foresee an environment that will eventually support event metadata. This in turn means that we will want to associate content metadata with event metadata, and vice versa.

Buzzword: Micro-learning

Picking up a couple of recent blog posts or videos from my RSS reader whilst eating lunch. You need to be able to point them to the particular page, or even paragraph, in the content that will help them at their point of need. HTML, and its close relative XML, is an ideal container for text-based micro-learning content, as it allows you to create machine-readable structures. RSS is a great example of this.
