Scripting News Workstation: Scripting News in Manila





 



1.5































Thanks to Chad Dickerson for the pointer to Forrester's RSS feed. I didn't know it was there. PC World has one as well.



Barney Lerten: "As someone who writes local news full-time for the Internet, I have high hopes for news aggregators, blogs and RSS."



Betsy Devine: "Julia Child brought French cooking to American TV."



Steve Hooker: "A tool to make a Backlog RSS file of all the posts that went to your front page." Radio.



Today's movie with the Scobles. Harmless, fun, intelligent ending. The good guys win.



(image) Tim Bray is setting me up as his fool again (and again no pointer). How rude. Locked trunks can be gotten out of. Houdini did it. Netscape led us out, in 1994, but didn't stick around to finish the job. Google had promise for a while, but the promise is fading. Microsoft-free Fridays were a response to Smart Tags, which will come back (probably in Longhorn) Allchin promises. Then people will be outraged, again, but will it matter? In the meantime every user who switches to a modern non-Microsoft browser is doing us all a favor and should have our thanks. And to be honest, the reason I'm rambling so long here is so I have enough space to include yet another cool Bryan Bell graphic on Scripting News today. ";->"



(image) At last night's dinner, which was a lot of fun, Marc Canter said that a lot of people don't know that RSS 2.0 is extensible. They think it can't evolve without changing the spec. He said I should do something to correct the misunderstanding. I agree. So here's a list of modules that extend RSS 2.0. In a way it's like the list of implementations for XML-RPC or SOAP. The larger and more diverse the list of extensions, the richer the environment. The authors of these modules claim that their namespaces work with RSS 2.0. As with the XML-RPC implementations, as new modules come online I'll keep you posted so you can watch it grow.



(image) Spoke with Phil Wolff, who's interested in how RSS scales; a topic we should really work on. We'll need a flame-free environment to do that. It's the perennial problem. Micah Alpern, who just took a job at eBay, wants to be able to blog to his eBay catalog. Makes total sense. There were two kids, my good friend Patrick Scoble (we're going to a movie this afternoon, yippee) and Mimi Canter, who's a real cutie and stole my straw.



Happiness is a new Bryan Bell graphic. ";->"
