I’ve been wondering about an interesting orange icon I have seen on the right hand side of the URL display in Firefox, which seemed to always be there for WordPress sites. Thanks to Tom at TuttleSVC, I know it is now implemented in Mozilla and Microoft browsers to indicate a site has an RSS feed […]
I’ve been eyeballing an ever increasing amount of web-based platforms for bringing together content (or microcontent, or nanocontent) from multiple sources, the echo again of Small Technologies (Pieces) Loosely Joined (note- if the content there is replaces by a wiki spam link, just wait until the bot resets the mess. Brian- you may want to […]
I am still liking the Glu. It seems SuprGlu is gaining some traction (judging from seeing other Glu-ers out there, Jay Cross, Tim Lauer, Scottish Educators, I am sure there are many more) and some new features (judging from poking around the site). My CogDogBlog RipMixGlu Feed File now has a few more RSS things […]
Taking the cue from Stephen Downes who took it from Jay Cross, I quickly checked out SuperGlu a new Web.0 tool that aggregates anything that you may have stored elswhere that provides an RSS feed… SuprGlu is about bringing the pieces of your web content together into one central place for you, your friends, and […]
Without mentioning the Web X.0 clichÃ©, Reader2 is a site definitely in the mix with elements of folksonomy, social networking, RSSing for people to build collections of books they have read or want to read.
It’s pretty quick and easy to add book titles- the add form allows to enter a title and use an Amazon search- it Ajaxes the results right in the page, copelting the author, ISBN etc. You can add your own series of tags, a descipription of the book, or a review. It has dropdown categories of books that is awfully limited (please make it more extensive or something we can configure, why cannot this be tagged as well?); as well are the “status” you can assign to a book- again, make it more open or extensive.
I’ve been playing with it off and on for a week…
My experiments with new services that offer tools to mix a set of different RSS feeds into one was interesting, and the comments brought in a few more. I’ve updated the original post to include: Aggrssive lazytom’s feedjumbler FEEDcombine Feed Findings FrankenFeed Feedjumbler had likely the easiest setup and mix of good output features, FrankenFeed […]
A year ago there were none but now there are a good handful of sites that allow you to mix in a collection of disparate RSS feed URLs, and it mixes them into a new one, with its own RSS feed. I refer these frequently to folks that write me about Feed2JS asking if it […]
As the tawdry saying goes… “I Like to watch” It’s not what your dirty minds think… I was one of more than 100 people watching LiveMarks, a near real time window of the input to the social bookmarking pile called del.icio.us: LiveMarks is a project to show del.icio.us bookmarks live. On the left of LiveMarks […]
Sort of retro, getting back to RSS used for feeds of news, but a nice mix and re-play is being offered at DailyRSS which is serving up news feeds from multiple sources and in categories: In addition to just the news, there are weather images and feeds plus a photo news feed; it uses some […]
For some reason this morning, NetNewsWire Lite (my desktop OS X RSS reader) was slow in updating the feeds, so I started poking around the interface. In the bottom left I noticed a small double arrow control labeled “default”, and I thought… “what does this do?”: Why it’s a menu! What does it do?: It’s […]
