More on the feed front. Sam at KinScape has offered and become the newest of the Feed2JS public mirror sites: serving up feeds to JavaScript from a server in Michigan. Again, it was about a 30 minute install via ftp (mostly me finding my own typos and errors). We're... «more»

That Canadian Factor- Maricopans are Asking About Wikis and RSS (April 6, 2005 04:58 PM)
Okay, maybe we've gushed a bit already, but something has happened here in our system. I think it is the Canadian aura, but after Brian Lamb's Dialogue Day with us last week, people are now popping out of the ground like prairie dogs, and seeing a beautiful wheat filled plain... «more»

My Dentist Has an RSS Feed (March 29, 2005 07:49 AM)
Two years, a year ago, it was noteworthy when feedless-sites were worth announcing they had added an RSS feed. Is it really newsworthy anymore? There is some sort of tipping point at work here, just curious if the threshold has been lost. It takes me back 10, 11, 12 years... «more»

Look out for your RSS-- as warned the vultures are still circling, and maybe hovering closer to your feeds.

Wists = flickr + (March 2, 2005 08:53 PM)
I am not sure yet what to make of wists - visual bookmarks, yet another variant following the flickr trail through the mountain pile of folksonomic tag mania. Create a wist account, load a browser bar tool, and when you are surfing and want to track a site in... «more»

Podcaster Request: Feed With a Summary (February 19, 2005 09:53 AM)
I continue to put my pennies in a piggy bank towards a future iPod. Until then, in scanning more and more RSS feeds that contain references to the audio enclosures, I am bothered/irked/annoyed by the scant details available to the summary in an RSS Reader: My Views on the Cheese... «more»

Not Ready for Prime Time: feed:// (February 16, 2005 01:58 PM)
I forgot who's WordPress blog I was surfing this morning, but a mouse hover over their RSS link turned the cursor to a question mark, and clicking the link actually auto subscribed that feed to me aggregator. The link was written differently than the typical link: feed:// That is correct,... «more»

(Not) Killing Me Softly With Your Feeds (February 9, 2005 11:44 AM)
Just having set up some stats reports on this server, I find with no surprise the big consumer of activity is our Feed2JS script, which according to the data, in the last 7 days felt: 3,182,586 hits (96% of the total) 455,000 hits per day 18,943 hits per hour 315... «more»

Distilling inbound links via and Furl (February 6, 2005 02:21 PM)
This is one of those found be serendipity things, what happens when you just freely poke around the web. Maybe it is obvious to many others, but it's new to me. Some folks rely on technorati for taking a pulse of links going to their content, and it sure provides... «more»

Putting MLX Feeds Where My Mouth Is (January 28, 2005 04:35 PM)
I recently wrote some criticism of views that RSS feeds are "only for new stuff", and given that I had a request today for a randomized Maricopa Learning eXchange feed, it was time to put my feeds where my mouth is/was. Before today, the feeds we generate as fixed static... «more»

RSS Blips on the Maricopa Radar (January 28, 2005 09:55 AM)
I saw today that RSS might be starting to meme its way across our system. It takes time. This morning I got a call from a faculty member asking where she can get software to see RSS. I sent her googling in "Desktop RSS Aggregator" not recalling which of the... «more»

Not delicious Feeds (January 20, 2005 10:42 AM)
Oh, I feel like a bad net citizen. Either due to my own code blunders, or someone else's overly aggressive page reloads or some force of the moon, our Feed2JS site has been banned from accessing feeds. Sorry about that folks, but you cannot display these feeds through our... «more»

Feed Changes that Send Ripples (January 19, 2005 01:09 PM)
It's a bit scary when I make a change/edit/?improvement to our Feed2JS (Feed to JavaScript) code, as any glitches or gotchas might show up on the hundreds? thousands? 3? of sites using it (I am basing some large numbers on the 20,000 files that built up in the cache directory).... «more»

RSS of Newest Stuff: Syndicating With Blinders (January 17, 2005 09:58 AM)
Robin Good's recent "Why RSS Search Feeds Based On Web Searches Are Important" was an interesting read for what it says about syndicating the results of web searches, but I had thought it would go down a different track. The quote that leaped out the page, from Steven M. Cohen... «more»

Oh, those messy character encodings.. (January 13, 2005 10:27 AM)
I recently wrote of some experiments to improved Feed2JS (see the updates fed to the site, bottom of the main page). Specifically, based on the request from a user in Germany, I attempted to change the output to encode content as UTF-8 using the new features on Magpie RSS 0.7.... «more»
