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. 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 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.

Introduction to Wikis, Blogs, Social Bookmarking, Social Networking and RSS

Social Bookmarking Social Networking Wikis RSSAs background for an upcoming presentation, I wanted to create a page that provides background resources that explain various eLearning 2.0 tools. I immediately thought of the Common Craft videos. I've embedded them below.

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.

Learning Analytics & Knowledge: Draft Syllabus

George Siemens

The Learning Analytics course begins January 10 (sign up by joining this group: [link] …or if you prefer not to use a google account, track posts via RSS). Numerous open courses are kicking off in 2011. I’m involved in two: Learning and Knowledge Analytics (LAK11) and the third iteration of Connectivism and Connective Knowledge (CCK11 – with Stephen Downes). I’ve posted the draft syllabus of LAK11 here.

A New Book, A New Look for Beth’s Blog!

Beth Kanter

The big learning for me is to make sure that if you use an RSS service that you point the feed to your domain – that way you can easily move your RSS subscribers without disruption and that way you control your RSS subscribers not the service. The New Beth's Blog.

Reframing the news

Doc Searls

Alas, Twitter posts tend to be snow on the water, flowing to near-oblivion and lacking syndication through RSS —though there are hacks.). Dave created RSS — Really Simple Syndication — as we know it today , and got The New York Times and other publications (including many papers and nearly all Web publishers) to adopt it as well. Today a search for “RSS” on Google brings up over two billion results. For RSS it’s syndication.

Etiquette for sharing

Harold Jarche

For example, if your site exports its RSS feed using something like Google’s Feedburner, then the link people click on in their aggregators has extra information attached; so you can be tracked. Many people like to share things online. Twitter is full of links to other websites.

iTunes for journalism (reprise)

Euen Semple

Why not build an RSS playlist of journalists you rate rather than having to pay for all the stuff you don't? Some time ago I suggested iTunes for journalism and compared newspapers to albums - having to buy two crap tracks along with the six you really want.

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. RSS is to this day the technology I use to keep in touch with the network (I just channel Twitter, Facebook and other feeds through my RSS reader) and one of the major ways I keep in contact with others. As I mentioned, I use RSS most of all.

Daniel on MOOCs

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

I previously posted an item on Sir John Daniel's discussion of MOOCs, but I have added more extensive comments on Tony Bate's review - I rather suspect it is much more likely to be read by him there than on any site of mine. Here is thus the comment I posted: > I will be interested though (as will the author) in your responses to the paper.

About this change to the site…

Clark Quinn

I still need to figure out a way to let folks sign up for Learnlets as an email feed (beyond RSS, but through Feedblitz, the service I use), but other than that it’s pretty much the same. So, I’d been unhappy with how hard it was to update my site. It had some problems, but I was afraid to change it because of the repercussions. Well, it turns out that’s not a problem! So what you see is my first stab at a new site.

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 practice of filling space and time — stuffing “content” into a “ news hole ” — is a relic of an era when printing and broadcast space and time were limited, privately held, and paid for mostly by advertising, which requires ears and eyeballs showing up predictably and in fixed places. The Internet obsoleted all of it, including the frame of news as filler. There is no hole.

How Do I Make Sense of Social Networking Tools

Luis Suarez

Reeder : Of course, I still use RSS feeds. Everyone thought that when Google terminated Google Reader that RSS newsfeeds would die a slow and painful death. RSS newsfeeds is another one to add into that pile. That’s how I use my RSS feeds at the moment: for curation purposes.

Is It Time To Let Feedburner Burn?

Beth Kanter

I’ve been using Feedburner for my blog RSS Feeds since 2005! It is time to self-host your RSS feed many people wondered? Rumors that Google will close Feedburner are circulating again, but this time there is an option for an RSS hosting service, although not free. 1) Update your web site’s RSS autodiscovery tags to point to your native blog’s feed. This means that new subscribers always follow a feed on your domain, not your RSS provider’s platform.

This was supported using a technology called Rich Site Summary (RSS), co-developed by Netscape and Dave Winer. RSS went through several early versions: RSS 0.91, which was the first production version, RSS 1.0, which used a web technology called Resource Description Framework (RDF), and RSS 2.0, Microcontent services such as Twitter and Facebook originally supported RSS.
