Google Alerts Drops RSS Delivery Option

Wed, 03 Jul 2013 01:24:35 PDT

Barry Schwartz of Search Engine Land points out that Google Alerts Drops RSS Delivery Option, which is pretty upsetting.

Seems that Google is either just dumping RSS wholesale or that the feed engine that ran the RSS […]

The rebirth of RSS?

Fri, 28 Jun 2013 21:34:17 PDT

This is a column written for the BBC World Service (here's the show.).

This is the text of a BBC piece I wrote, based on our Reuters story of a week or so ago.   The problem with smartphones is that they’re visible. We want them to be visible; we flaunt them. We put them on the table in restaurants, we fiddle with them if conversation lags; we not […]
