Introducing Podcatch.com: "Subscribing may be the wrong way to look at it. When I want a podcast I don't want to subscribe. I want to listen. All the time between the want and the fulfillment seems like work. Why is this so hard. "

Digg Blog, Digg Reader is Live!: "After a week of testing and scaling, adding batches of users and improving our infrastructure, we’re happy to fully open Digg Reader to the public!
To give you a sense of scale, last night we were crawling over 3.3 million feeds. We’re now up to 4.5 million. That’s a lot of data – and it’s growing quickly – but (at the risk of tempting the cruel and unforgiving Fates), the site has remained speedy and stable."
"What I mean by RSS By Dave Winer on Thursday, November 10, 2011 at 1:04 PM. I can't tell anyone how to use the term RSS, but I can tell you how I use it.
RSS is a family of syndication formats that traces its roots far back in the history of computer science. The most widely used version of RSS is 2.0. I wrote the spec for that version, created software that read and wrote it, and helped content providers, notably the NY Times, get online with it.
We also adapted RSS to transport what I thought of as "audio blog posts." This became podcasting.
There are lots of different kinds of software that produce RSS and consume it. Each of them has its own name. But they are not RSS. They are applications that do stuff with RSS.
"Are you busy, so much so, that you don’t even get time to read newspapers or watch news on TV?

Infonary.com is here for all you workaholics out there. Get all the latest news, videos, extracts, images and much more from leading newspapers and TV news channels, all at one place.

Different categories have been defined for various sections like Sports, Business, Education, Health etc. So you can find the news on the topics of your choice easily."
"Chrome: If you do most of your reading in Google Reader, you probably find truncated RSS feeds—that is, feeds that only give you the first paragraph of a post—annoying. Convert them all into full feeds with one simple Chrome extension."
"Firefox 4: If you're a big fan of RSS, you've probably noticed that Firefox 4 did away with the handy RSS address bar icon that gave you quick access to all RSS feeds on a page. This extension brings it back."
"The amount of content being distributed via the internet can be daunting for organisations. Many have limited budgets, so it is important to have tools that can allow spending time on important activities, such as fundraising. However, keeping track of information pertinent to the organisation brand, and who is saying what, can be time consuming. Being current with information need not be a hard task. There are simple tools, often free, that can make capturing information pertinent to your organisation fairly simple. That is where RSS feeds and feed readers are useful. They offer speed of delivery, update your current topics of choice, keep your identity private, are flexible and do not use up bandwidth."

Multiple authoring modes are provided for collaborative posting of items onto the same feed including optional moderation of postings by the feed owner."
"Times for iPad brings a newspaper aesthetic to the 21st century experience of reading news with RSS feeds. Instead of a tried and tested list of feeds and folders on the left and headlines on the right, Times lays out stories and photos in columns more akin to a newspaper, with separate, customizable topic pages like technology, arts & entertainment, sports, and whatever else you want."
Some good news about innovation in how RSS feeds are read and presented.
"This post is the first in a short series exploring my hypothesis of RSS as the technological foundation of Web 2.0 for my PhD research. I have had the honor of talking with Dave Winer about my research and to pose him some questions. I would like to thank him for his time, thoughts and provoking new ideas for my dissertation."
"FeedRank is a numeric ranking system for RSS feeds and is generated based on a content analysis algorithm developed exclusively by RSSMicro.

"Now you can create and deploy RSSBus Simple Services on the Google Cloud! RSSBus for Google App Engine is a pure Java implementation of RSSBus Server, designed exclusively for deployment to Google’s web infrastructure."
"Facebook, which turned six years old today and has some 400 million users, is a major player in the way people consume news all around the world, according to conclusions from ReadWriteWeb and HitWise."
"As I always say, there is better living through syndication.
So with that in mind, I’m happy to introduce MyFeedSync for MySpace. Just like the recently launched Twitter Sync, this service allows you to pipe in any RSS feed directly into your MySpace activity stream."
RSS is the pipeline that links up all the various social media sites.
"Twitterfeed has grown pretty fast since its early side project days. There are now 350,000 publishers from the White House to CNN to John Cleese pumping out almost 600,000 feeds and generating around 5,500,000 clicks to your sites every day."
Information on RSS, TwitterFeed, PubSubHubBub, RSS Cloud, and Google Analytics.
"RSS is great. That said, it isn't real-time. With the advent of Twitter, people are now beginning to wonder why RSS needs to poll every hour. Why can't we have the immediacy of Twitter in RSS. Time for a history lesson."
This is the best article I have seen on the issue of immediacy of RSS. It is excellent.
"The main idea behind rssCloud is that your RSS reader can ask to be notified when a feed changes (push), rather than having to check the feed on a regular basis (pull). This is accomplished by having your RSS reader subscribe to updates with the feed server."
Thoughtful discussion on the rssCloud real-time RSS.
"I’m not sure who’s idea it was to make importing an RSS feed into your Facebook page such a challenge, but it shouldn’t be this painful. You’d think it would be possible to go to your page, check-out your settings and add your RSS feed URL to a field and save it. Not so quick."
Valuable information for integrating social media.
"At our Real-Time Stream CrunchUp event last month, one of the most interesting things that was demoed was PubSubHubbub, a new protocol made by a few Googlers in their spare time to improve the speed at which Atom and RSS items travel around the web. As expected, they have a big player on their side now: Google Reader."

A big publishing site that will publish your RSS Feeds.
"RSS and syndication are the veins that the new social web flows through. Countless products and services have been built on top of RSS in the past few years but there are always a few that stand above the rest.
As part of this year’s Top 10 Products series, we offer below the Top 10 RSS and Syndication Products of 2008. These are the feed tools we and the people we know use day in and day out, we love them - we hate them, we wouldn’t want to work without them."
Not the usual list of RSS tools. These tools are for the more advanced RSS user.
"RSS is one of those technologies that are extremely simple yet extremely powerful. ... we’ll cover in this post some (hopefully) relatively unknown but useful RSS-related tricks and hacks that will help you use RSS in a more effective way — and without unnecessary and chunky WordPress plug-ins."
Some great ideas on enhancing your RSS when using WordPress.
"In this post I give you a video showing how you can create ‘RSS mashups’ which are combined feeds made up of other feeds and ensure these are unique so you can create a different feed for every site that needs one to avoid the duplicate content filter."
A very nice video that discusses mashups, RSS feeds, and how to generate fresh content using Yahoo Pipes.
"Internet giant Google on Tuesday beefed up its free Web-based email service by adding online video and voice chat as well as automatic translation of RSS feeds people commonly use to stay updated on blogs and news."
Automatic translation of RSS Feeds sounds so interesting. I think I will subscribe to a feed from Japan.
"RSS is one of your most valuable tools as a social media marketer. Here is a list of 139 tools and articles that will let you master the craft of converting visitors to subscribers, and increasing your return traffic. Resources include feed creation, promotion, stats, conversion, plugins, validation, and more."
"Forrester Research today published a new report on the state of RSS. In short, while there are bright spots, it does not paint the picture of a technology that's going mainstream anytime soon. On a positive note, the resarch entitled What's Holding RSS Back?, says that nearly half of marketers have moved to add feeds to their web sites. Further, RSS adoption among consumers is at 11% up from just 2% of users three years ago. RSS feeds usage is more dominant among men."
"If had to pick a single technology that changed my life the most this decade it would be RSS. Phones and computers evolve, surely. However feeds, which I started reading in 2003, were a total game changer. Today I read almost 600 of them. In fact I view my entire reading list as a competitive weapon that allows me to help my company and our clients stay head of the curve."
Steve Rubel is a thought leader in the world of marketing communications. Here are his thoughts about the future of full and summary RSS feeds.
"RSS Popper is a news aggregator add-in for Outlook & Outlook Express. News items delivered directly to Outlook as e-mails. No need to use a separate program for reading RSS anymore. All RSS/RDF/Atom formats are supported.
Just download, install, set your favorite news feeds, and you're ready to go."
This is a freeware product. I run it for Outlook Express and it works just fine. It seems light and clean. Enough functionality, but no bloat.
"FeedMyInbox is a very simple service that attempts to bridge the gap between feeds (RSS, XML, Atom) and email... Only 3% of computer users are familiar with how feeds work, and are using feed readers to get up-to-date information from their favorite sites. We don't think the other 97% should be left out in the cold, so now you can subscribe to a feed with your email address."
A simple approach to getting RSS Feeds in your Inbox.
"The RSS Screensaver is a screensaver that lets you subscribe to one or more RSS feeds, and select a directory for background images. The Screensaver loops through the list of RSS items and shows the contents of the feed in the right hand side."
"First off is making inconvenient, low-tech job listing sites--the kind without RSS feeds, email alerts, or any other technologies beyond 2001--much more manageable through a combination of a 'page scraper,' or RSS generator, and automatic RSS-to-email services to make sure you're never near the bottom of the resume stack."
This is for a specific purpose, but it is a good overview of RSS scrapers and RSS-to-email tools and how they work for a specific purpose.
"RSS Popper is a news aggregator add-in for Outlook & Outlook Express. News items delivered directly to Outlook as e-mails. No need to use a separate program for reading RSS anymore. All RSS/RDF/Atom formats are supported."
For many people, this simplifies reading RSS feeds because they come into the mail box like emails.
"Now affiliate managers can publish product reviews and articles, or even weekly specials, through an RSS enabled blog. Affiliates will promote these RSS feeds to the public and will receive credit for CPA conversions resulting from the articles published through the feed."
"Really Simple Syndication (RSS) allows you to get information sent directly to you, eliminating the need for you to that information individually. Using a reader will allow all the RSS feeds to come to one spot for you to read at your leisure. While reading news and blogs has been a traditional use for RSS feeds, there are also tons of fun ways to use these feeds. The list below touches on some ways you can read the news, but it also lets you learn, share, keep up with your interests, and so much more."
A list of interesting and fun things to add to your RSS reader.
"FilteredRSS.com is a bayesian filter for your RSS feeds. Instead of using keywords to filter your RSS, you instead rate feed items. This gives our filter examples of what you like and don't like for that feed (much like a spam filter for email). The filter then learns what you like and uses this to predict your preference on future items. This free tool can also combine one or more RSS feeds. FilteredRSS is very easy to use and we only need an RSS feed url and your email address to get you started."
I have successfully used bayesian filters to weed out spam email (SpamBayes), so this is interesting.
"About Feedbooks “Feedbooks is a universal e-paper platform compatible with all e-paper devices where you can download thousands of free e-books, publish and share your own content, and create customized newspapers from RSS feeds and widgets.”"

An RSS portal with a twist - stories are based on attention data.
Google provides a simple way to put RSS content on your website.
"Roel Vertegaal and The Human Media Lab at Queens University are busy developing disruptive technologies that will shape the future of computing ... They’ve also come up with radical concepts like RSS feeds and movie trailers on the side of a soda can ..."

Add any RSS feed to your Jott account, call Jott and have them read to you over your phone. Whether you are in the car, on the train, or walking around town- you can now listen in to your trusted sources of news and other content without needing Internet access."
I use Jott for their reminder service so I am pleased that they have added RSS feeds to their toolkit. Call Jott and get the latest on RSS feeds.
"We've been hinting at this for awhile, but it's finally time to spill the beans: Starting next week, we'll be rolling out AdSense for feeds to a small group of publishers, in anticipation of a full launch to all FeedBurner and AdSense publishers 'coming soon'. If you start seeing 'Ads by Google' on an ad in a feed somewhere, that'd be us."
Ads on RSS feeds. It was inevitable when Google bought FeedBurner. It looks like it is close.
"With all the discussions about information overload and the need for filtering, it looks like we're going to finally start getting some relief. This month, two companies made announcements about updates to their RSS readers which will now provide their users with built-in filtering technologies."
Sisyphus was a mythological king punished cursed to roll a huge boulder up a hill, only to watch it roll down again, and to repeat this throughout eternity. Much like these patients who are cursed to spend a morning checking their RSS reader, only to find there are still “8,978 posts unread”."
Only one of the psychological complaints is about RSS, but it was good enough to note.
"Add your own news to your Website or news from Yahoo, CNN, and CNET using Flash. Use RSS News Flash to announce news and link to other pages. Save space while improving the look and feel of your site. Take full control over size, style, color, borders, scroll settings, and more. Best of all you don't need to know any code to get news on your Site fast and easy !"
"But French Courts have recently held liable people who were integrating someone else's feed on their own page or blog due to the content of the feed, even though the feed was automatically updated, so that the people who were displaying on their websites didn't have any idea of its content."
An informative article, particularly in noting the difference between a publisher and a hosting provider.
"Snackr is a new Adobe AIR app that lets you display items in your RSS feeds in a beautiful scrolling ticker on any edge of your screen. I am absolutely giddy about it after only a few minutes of use. Snackr is something you'd supplement your existing reader with, not a replacement. It is not for the faint of heart or information averse, either."
RSS Readers are moving in new directions with new functionality.
"Times is a new type of newsreader for Mac OS X Leopard. ... Instead of treating news like email (as most RSS readers do), Times presents you with headlines and photos from a variety of sources all in one place, letting you more easily discover the news you want to read."
"BOOK REVIEW Our guide to the RSS guides By Joe Dolittle
In this all-new book review shootout, we put four books to the test. Read on to learn how Developing Feeds with RSS and Atom by Ben Hammersley, Content Syndication with RSS by Ben Hammersley, Beginning RSS and Atom Programming by Danny Ayers and Andrew Watt, and Hacking RSS and Atom by Leslie M. Orchard stand up to our editorial review.
With more and more people reading RSS via Outlook 2007, it seemed useful for us to dig in and learn more about RSS."
"As Lifehacker describes it, ReadBurner, "turn[s] Google Reader sharing into an action similar to bookmarking a page on Del.icio.us or voting for an article on Digg."

An article on techniques spam bloggers use and some hints on how to block them.
"One source for free RSS feeds, on virtually any topic you can think of, is the United States Government. USA.gov is the home to government information. At the site's library you can find RSS feeds, podcasts, government blogs, and even a photo credits page directing you to public domain images. For the small business person building their own web presence this source of free (forgetting about April 15 for a second) content can really help customers and create a great web presence at the right price."
"Many users have asked us for a RSS feed of Network Updates and as I'd commented over two weeks ago, we now allow you to subscribe to your network updates via RSS!

* combine many feeds into one, then sort, filter and translate it. * geocode your favorite feeds and browse the items on an interactive map. * power widgets/badges on your web site. * grab the output of any Pipes as RSS, JSON, KML, and other formats."
"RSS is easily one of the best things to happen to web publishing in the past 10 years. It allows users to easily keep track of news from multiple web sites because updates are delivered directly to them. But the problem many people face is that there are so many sources of information that we're trying to keep track of, we've become buried. Information overload is a real problem for many web users, and one way to cope with it is to filter your RSS feeds so you only see what you want to see."
"About the Pipes Blog. This is the official blog for Pipes, an interactive feed aggregator and manipulator. Using Pipes, you can create feeds that are more powerful, useful and relevant. Learn more about Pipes from our overview."

Several products go from RSS to email. This one does the reverse. What is it good for? Changing list serves and group emails to RSS perhaps.

A serialised RSS web feed enables a subscriber to receive, perhaps on a daily basis, sequential episodes from within a series of episodes. The subscriber always starts at the beginning regardless when they start their subscription. "
This is an excellent idea. I am considering this for the RSS Tutorial. It would give people the opportunity to have the Tutorial delivered a lesson at a time over a period of time.
It provides some of the same functionality for RSS as the auto- responder does for email.
