People and journalists 😉 are writing about a blogging phenomena n Greensboro, North Carolina, which apparently is becoming a critical mass as maybe a hub in public engagement in blogging (reading, writing, commenting), Jay Rosen in Greensboro Newspaper Goes Open Source: A Follow Up: I am going to stay on the story of the Greensboro […]
I feel pretty much late to the dance with podcasting. It is a technology phenomnma that seems like it happened more or less while I was out of the country 3 weeks in November. My colleagues D’Arcy and Brian are all over it, and I have give high credence to things my trusted colleagues get […]
It’s a sunny day in Phoenix, but a cloud of pessimism is on the horizon, an unfortunate evolution of innovative internet innovations that start as open environments, only to become more convoluted, and polluted as they mainstream. This came as I examined a series of new borg-like “RSS Services” that read like ads for Direct […]
I just made an update to our RSS Feed2JS service and free code. This changes will not break any current use, just adds some new options for some of the parameters, including: David Carter-Tod suggested a new line of code that allows the output to use the Atom fields for encoded content.

Scott Leslie recently wrote about using Rollup to put together a super feed of his favorite educablogger’s furl and deli.icio,us feeds: lots of folks have separate Furl and del.icio.us sites/feeds.

Via open artifact cam this link to MovableBlog’s Integrating del.icio.us with PHP and Magpie describing a way to embed the output of your del.icio.us links in a web page. As always, there are many paths to the same destination.
If you are on a PHP capable server, you can install Magie (which you need to do with the approach described via MovableBlog), but if you also use our PHP version of Feed2JS you can achieve the same effect.
The advantage of our approach over the one described above is that it can be repeated quite easily just by creating new shorter series of include statements. For example, below I will use it with my del.ici.ous RSS feed, but 3 weeks ago I used a different set of parameters to the same code. Feed, Rinse, Repeat.
Feedster is offering a new search tool to help you find content that comes from weblogs, a handy way to scope your web searches. For the uninitiated, Feedster provides a google-like interface for searching things found in RSS feeds. It offers tools to store your own set of feeds (like another flavor of Bloglines as […]
The tagging features of flickr have taken the next step- elevating results of a display of shared photo tags to other relavant tag sets (see tag relatedness features). For example, the flickr wide tags for where I am right now to more specific results as well as related topics. How does it do this? You […]
