Sheelagh, I think good design will always be very important and I think RSS should be a design consideration for those that just want information without the thrills and frills. A good design might get you to a site but the RSS feed might be what has you subscribe to the site and keep you revisiting it.

Sure, I agree fully. But the gist of my question is do people think that in the future good design will become redundant because sole purpose will be to feed content?

Newsfeeds are an essential element of good web design because there is no way a site is well-designed if it does not feed its audience. If a site has a feed, it offers a well-oiled, instantly accessible channel for the impaired. I believe we need to red card those whose sites use public monies to cloak content behind their designs. I believe Irish bloggers should be educated in the techniques of ego-surfing, pingback listening and tag tracking. Listen to your back channels and learn.

This might sound like a slightly sad question, but what about websites and great web design? Will RSS be the end of all that?

It's better to insist upon newsfeeds than blogging. But we know one yields the other. We should make a red-yellow-green rating system for newsfeeds served by public bodies. Make one of the measures of accessiblity be RSSification. Podshow Plus incorporates very clever RSS feeds for all sorts of audio-visual media. It's as though you're able to produce your own playlists from what sits inside the Podshow network. On BT Broadband, these RSS feeds are like being able to create your own Electronic Programme Guide. EPGs aren't feared as too-technical by most people. If we can make all RSS as fluffy as non-intimidating as a television remote, we're going to see bigger uptake.

I think we'll see a huge uptick in the availability of RSS feeds in 2007 with the mainstream launch of IE7 and Vista.

And in addition to job sites, right now I'm wishing the likes of provided feeds of their search results so I could track when something promising comes up for rent. Rob, that's just the kind of thing that Syndic8 have been doing for a fair while now: scraping pages and turning them into newsfeeds.

Of course, given any well-structured web page, one can produce an RSS feed of that page. Now, obviously you couldn't re-distribute that RSS feed. An interesting project would be a local RSS gateway with a domain specific language defining rules for deriving RSS; if you wanted an RSS feed for Site X, you'd simply download the appropriate definition, and your gateway would make one.

I've been wondering the same thing Damien. I ran the first Business Blogging event in Ireland in June 2005 through it@cork. I ran a couple of RSS events there too. I ran a Blog Training course (which was over-subscribed - we'll be running another one early in 2007). I have written many articles on Business Blogging including a long post on the advantages of blogging for business. I have given seminars and consulted directly to businesses. I dunno, maybe it is me - maybe I'm turning them off blogging ;-) Seriously though, if you have any ideas of what else I could be doing, I'd love to hear them.
