Read without prejudice..

In early November you should be updating your blogrolls with this OPML list.

A lot of fresh information will be posted on those blogs.


New blogging engine

Tue, 29 Jul 2003 19:17:34 GMT

Clemens released dasBlog, a successor to BlogX. Since my cycles are running out, I'll have to install it with some lag.

Maybe, someday, he will even embrace and extend an RSS aggregator and implement this functionality. The circle would be closed then.


Querying RSS URLs on UDDI

Thu, 24 Jul 2003 14:45:33 GMT

Based on this and this I just wrote a web service, which enables RSS URL lookup for web logs registered at UDDI.

It should be simple to integrate this into current RSS aggregators. Email me for code.

Web service URL:

There are two metods. One returns an RSS URL based on UDDI service key. One returns an RSS URL based on UDDI service name. If multiple versions of RSS feeds are found, service looks for RSS 2.0 feed first. Then RSS 1.0, then RSS 0.9x. It returns '-1' if no feed is found.

Web service does dynamic queries against Microsoft's UDDI server inquire API.


OPML nonconformities

Thu, 24 Jul 2003 12:25:27 GMT

I just noticed that Greg's OPML structure isn't compatible with BlogX's OPML structure.

The differences I encountered were found at least in xmlurl and htmlurl attributes of the outline element. Since I don't have the cycles to look further, I just hand edited those two attributes.

Greg dumps xmlurl and htmlurl out.
Dare/Chris dump xmlUrl and htmlUrl out.

And the spec doesn't help here either.
[Rant: We need OPML schema, which is more restrictive.]


The list (continued)

Thu, 24 Jul 2003 11:45:00 GMT

Clemens updates his OPML list.

For those of you who thought his web site isn't working, here's a hint: Wait.

Errr, no more waiting (courtesy of .NET threading model and Clemens).

When is Greg going to include this one into the product I'm using right now? It would be great if it got into version 1.3 feature list.


The list

Tue, 22 Jul 2003 21:54:33 GMT

The list is getting longer...

If only people would register their weblogs on UDDI. Or UDDI. Or UDDI. It really doesn't matter.

RSS.Next should specify this in its spec. What good can a weblog do, if nobody can find it? What good can a blogger do if he/she can't move/join another company?

We really need redirect semantics in blogspace.


UDDI registration

Tue, 22 Jul 2003 11:27:32 GMT

I just updated our UDDI profile, which until now included only web services that we provide to general public. Now it includes my personal web log as a service linked to RSS 2.0 tModel.

Clemens implemented an OMPL view over this, which makes it damn simple for aggregator folks to do what seems logical...

... implement UDDI lookup features, so people can change their virtual addresses without a headache.


Dave Winer does it

Sat, 19 Jul 2003 10:06:28 GMT

Via Dave Winer has transferred the copyright to RSS 2.0 to Harvard Law School as well as opened it up for more public feedback. This is good because RSS 2.0 is gaining in popularity but has come under fire lately for being controlled by Dave alone.

This is good. Really good.


Dejan blogs

Wed, 16 Jul 2003 08:14:44 GMT

One of my favourite ex patriots Dejan Jelović had a weblog for quite some time, but today I found out he put an RSS facade over it.



Valid RSS

Mon, 23 Jun 2003 18:31:24 GMT

According to this I am valid.

So, this is justified:

Things are getting better

Sam Ruby is proposing this roadmap for wiki.
