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. Neither si there a search of feeds or posts; I''m really going to miss that. The Old Reader - [link] One of the first replacement RSS readers off the mark. No search.

Designing E-Learning 3.0 in gRSShopper - 9

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

The RSS Feed The course isn't truly distributed until it has an RSS feed. We'll use the course newsletter as our RSS feed, except we'll publish the output in rss2 format instead of HTML. So, exactly as before, we'll build the RSS page in the page Editor. Dates in RSS need to be RFC 822, so I use date format=rfc822 - I've included keywords for both posts and media, so I can include the videos as links in the RSS feed.

In theory I could harvest the YouTube RSS (Google just reinstated YouTube RSS a few months ago) but that's on the list of things to test.

We launched the course this week and I did a bunch of things to get ready.

Top Ten Subliminal Searches

Tony Karrer

As I mentioned before more than half of the traffic to my blog comes from search engines. Of course, that doesn't count folks who read content in their RSS reader, but still its a significant number. What's sometimes fun to do is take a look at various search terms that people use to find my blog. This made me wonder what else people were searching for, having me come up in the results list AND deciding to click on me. worst design management 8.

p (I have to do a Google search on 'WinSCP show hidden files' to remember how to find hidden files like.htaccess -- ah, here it is.) There are other formats available: RFC822 (for RSS feeds), nice (for nice dates), and more. In the previous segment I decided to create a course with modules and sections, and set up the modules. I'll fill out the actual content of those modules over time. But now I need to stance face-to-face with something I've been dreading.

Social Media: An Interview

It was a game, of course, but over the next five years I progressed through the game to become a wizard, which meant that I was designing the MUD. 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.

Doc Searls

For example, we could search in real time, but search engine indexes were essentially archives, no matter how often they were updated. Technorati , IceRocket , PubSub and other live RSS-fed search engines came along to address that issue, as did Google Blogsearch as well. But they mostly covered blogs and sites with RSS feeds. And RSS is still a Live Web thing.). Search not only needs to be up-to-date, but up-to-now.
