He made RSS open infrastructure, just as Linus Torvalds did with Linux, and countless other geeks have done with their own contributions to the virtual lumberyard of free building material we use to make the online world. At this point in history, Twitter soaks up nearly all the oxygen the microblogging room.

That tweeting it is a private breed of microblogging verges on irrelevance. Look at four other social things you can do on the Net (along with the standards and protocols that support them): email (SMTP, POP3, IMAP, MIME); blogging (HTTP, XML, RSS, Atom); podcasting (RSS); and instant messaging (IRC, XMPP, SIP/SIMPLE).

Blogs may also be read through special readers, known as ‘RSS readers’, which aggregate blog summaries produced by blog software. Readers use RSS readers to ‘ subscribe ’ to a blog. Popular web-based RSS readers include Google Reader and Bloglines. Others use ‘microblogging’ services such as Twitter. Encouraging students to set up an RSS reader with each other’s blogs will make reading and commenting a lot easier.
