Okay folks. We have polished off most of the rough edges of the wiki part of our presentation on What’s the Fuss abour RSS? and are here tossing it out for your viewing.

Update (Sept 3, 2003) The wiki has been spiffed up and moved to http://careo.elearning.ubc.ca/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?TheFuss

This is what myself, Brian Lamb (University of British Columbia), and D’Arcy Norman (CAREO, University of Calgary) will be talking through this Friday, July 11 (9am PST, Noon EST) for a telephone conference through the Learning Objects Virtual Community of Practice (LOVCOP).

You may need to visit the LOVCOP site to request access for the phone details (it is a toll free call).

Our collaboration by itself has been a ‘net endeavor, facilitated by RSS feeds, weblogs, email, planning sessions via iChat, and group writing our outline and linked resources in a wiki. In fact, it will be the first time I have heard D’Arcy speak ;-)

Look also for a similar presentation at the 2003 MERLOT Conference

Profile Picture for Alan Levine aka CogDog
An early 90s builder of the web and blogging Alan Levine barks at CogDogBlog.com on web storytelling (#ds106 #4life), photography, bending WordPress, and serendipity in the infinite internet river. He thinks it's weird to write about himself in the third person.


  1. Alan, Brian and D’Arcy, the wiki page is awesome. I don’t think I will make the presentation but I’m really interested to hear what kind of reaction it elicits from this audience. You definitely have a challenge – just presenting the concepts of RSS and blogging can be difficult enough if your audience has no experience with them, and then trying to insert the role they can play with LOs… Good luck! I think the wiki page is really comprehensive and ordered, as much as can be for these topics, in a way that unfolds the story nicely.

    Cheers, Scott.

  2. Awesome, really awesome. Minor tidbits…

    The Fuss Wiki:

    – I thought my talk at IMS (No, Really, This is what We Want) was a motivator… at least, that’s what I was told

    – No mention of Edu_RSS on the wiki (but it is listed in the presentation)


    – the link http://jade.mcli.dist.maricopa.edu/alan.docs/thefuss.html returns 404


    – It hasn’t really come into play yet, but mention of RSS-LOM might be relevant

    These are all very minor points (and I might be the only person in the would who would care). This really is an outstanding presentation – I wish I could be there for it (get someone to video it).
