“RSS is neither simple nor syndicated: discuss”
I’m not going to blog all the notes, since his presentation is up on pbwiki: Presentation site
Some points of interest:
- You can analyze trends with Google Reader, find your subscription numbers (this is fairly new), share items (which creates a new page of shared items, and another RSS feed of those shared items – this could be a really great item for sharing information among organizations)
- Tumblr – can share snippets, images, other feeds (Twitter, blog RSS feed, Flickr) – again provides another feed – can grab stuff from lots of folks, again could be good for organizations sharing information.
- Windows Vista has an RSS feed directly on the desktop, IE directly on the browser.
- Libworm.com – searching the biblioblogosphere and beyond. Run search results and then grab the feed.
- Techmeme Meta RSS for Tech bogs
- Wesmirch – Meta RSS for celebrity gossip
- Page2RSS – can create a feed from any page, whether they have one or not.
- Ebsco databases have feeds for searches now – after running a search for someone doing a big research project, subscribe to the feed and email them with new articles that come out. “You look like a hero.”
