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.

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 del.icio.us links. It appears that most people still point to my Blogspot feed. I would suggest that readers of this blog might want to change over to the FeedBurner feed to get this added functionality: [link

Aide RSS Filtering Tool

Tony Karrer

AideRSS looks at a variety of sources of information including comments, technorati, bloglines, icerocket and del.icio.us to determine what posts are generating the most interest. 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. I've been creating similar information manually for a while, so it's nice to have an automated support for it.

RSS Javascript Risk?

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Are there in fact any examples of computers being compromised by Javascript in RSS feeds? This is silly. Moreover, is there any evidents that this is a danger that is distinct from, or over and above, the use of Javascript on web pages generally? Reading this makes me wonder why the author I writing it. It is not a genuine cautionary note, because there is no specific danger. Therefore, I believe the point of the article is to criticize or attack Javascript. I wonder why.

Will Blogs, Wikis, RSS, Mashups be Used in Corporate eLearning?

Tony Karrer

In this post, Dave unfortunately lumps together blogs, wikis, mashups, rss feed together (probably because eLearning 2.0 RSS and Blogs have much slower adoption. I saw another post from Dave Boggs, Has The Blogging Trend Begun To Fade, Even Before It Ever Got Started In Corporate Training / e-Learning Environments? and web 2.0 often lump them together).

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. What’s already there, like RSS and its relatives, that we can put to use? First, read Dave ’s The Mother of all Business Models.

no more email subscriptions

Harold Jarche

I would strongly suggest using a Feed Reader or RSS aggregator to manage your subscriptions. RSS has been around for a long time but the platform capitalists do not want you to use it as they cannot track you as easily as staying in their app or on their website.

Working in the Facebook salt mine

Euen Semple

But given the fact that most people don't use RSS and following blogs isn't as straightforward as it might be, and the fact that I currently get the best responses and conversations on Facebook, I will continue to repost my blog posts there. I blog because I enjoy blogging. I have been doing it for so long that I can safely assume that I will always blog. I often think of just blogging on my blog and pulling out of the various social media platforms.

The perils of "easier"

Euen Semple

I am preparing for a webinar tomorrow in which I hope to explain RSS to the participants. It used to be easy. You had feeds, you had aggregators, the principles seemed clear. Now it has all got muddy with things like Paper.li and Flipboard "making things easier". But they are not easier, they are more managed. In the attempt to make things easier they have changed the nature of the thing you are trying to do. This happens all the time.

The sound of silence

Euen Semple

And my blog is the place where I get least response as the numbers of people using RSS aggregators has diminished over the years. I enjoy the comment threads I get on my posts on Facebook. It is these sort of interactions that attracted me to the social web in the first place. Interestingly I get much less response on LinkedIn and Twitter despite the fact that I am connected to many more people on those two platforms.

By the way, I'm still looking for a free tool that will let me do this with someone else online at the same time.
