More TeleInterActivity from Microsoft

11/21/05 | by JAdP | Categories: Computers and Internet, Open Source, RSS, Syndication

As presaged by Dave Winer yesterday and announced by him today, Ray Ozzie, now at Microsoft, has introduced Simple Sharing Extensions as a new XML nameSpace using RSS and OPML to allow lists of items, and outlines to interactively exchange their information. Marc Canter also hinted at this development in his guest piece for the AlwaysOn Network "Breaking the Web Wide Open".

I believe that this is going to be a tremendously important development, on several levels.

  • It does more to validate Microsofts new software as a service agenda, and demonstrates more about open standards and open APIs than the previous Microsoft demos; as much because of the use of a CreativeCommons license as for opening up synchronization among disparate applications and services like calendar, contacts, events, reading lists, and more, and so much more.
  • Though that is secondary to the impact this will have on bringing many of the promises of Web 2.0 to fruition.
  • The adoption of the SSE standard will allow the realization of personal Identity management and AttentionTrust.
  • We'll see new levels of groupware and enabling of distributed workgroups.
  • This is one more, and very powerful, piece of the puzzle to enable the TeleInterActive Lifestyle™
  • We're all going to have a lot of fun with this.

You can also find more information in the SSE FAQ. Don Dodge has a well-writtne piece on SSE. There's an interesting preview on the AttentionTrust Blog, as well.

Update: Mike Arrington says

"New companies will be built on the back of SSE."end quotation
-- Michael Arrington "COOL - SSE turns RSS bidirectional"

Update 2: Alex Barnett has a good list of reactions to the SSE in his post, "Microsoft proposal: Simple Sharing Extensions for RSS and OPML".

As Miss Rogue points out, the blogoshpere is abuzz about, the search aggregator, primarily for mobile devices, but available from any platform, that uses RSS and outputs through OPML. So much so, that you can't get to the site.

We started getting referrer stats from yesterday, and, as I mentioned in a comment to, I could get to that URL, but no other.

I finally got through to [hey, this is all about hubris after all]. The results were all about, well, us. Except for one for teleinteractive audio by Rohr Post. There were no results on CASTLE - Computer Aided System for
Teleinteractive Learning in Environmental Monitoring
, which surprised me.

Gada.Be looks like an interesting system. Though I've never have had trouble using search tools on my Palm via Bluetooth to my mobile to the Web. But having searches from multiple engines as RSS feeds into my aggregators is really cool.


TagHop and Feed Categories

I recently posted about Categories for news feeds and blogging, in relation to suggesting additional categories for Bayosphere Citizen Journalists' articles and for organizing the RSS, RDF or Atom feeds to which one might subscribe in a feed reader. You can read the original post in either the TeleInterActive Lifestyle or Bayosphere. Steven Livingstone-Perez responded, via trackback, in taghop: Managing Categories

Joseph A. di Paolantonio recently blogged how he re-organized his categories to use technorati tags and is hoping to move toward a better fine-tuned folksonomy.

While i belive this is useful, I still see a few factors that I hope taghop.ORG can address when looking to perform such an activity.end quotation

-- StevenR2 in taghop: Managing Categories

So, I've spent some time since I saw Steven's response reading about Taghop, both in the COM and ORG domains. I created a Taghop account and added some URLs, for blogs from the TeleInterActive Press and Bayosphere, and used some of the "public" URLs for various news organizations. Taghop allows one to relate the tags/categories to others' tags or categories, and allows one to do so regardless of where one uses those tags, such as So, Taghop was the impetus that I needed to create a account. &#59;D

I'm still getting the feel for things at Taghop, and Taghop is in beta. Perhaps Steven can answer some questions for me, and please don't read anything below as a criticism.

  • I found a "developer's page" - Is Taghop Open Source?
  • What license is being used?
  • Scaling: the presentation of how blogs are related seems a bit cumbersome, but the "example" showing graphical relationships is cool - perhaps a "map" of relationships might be better than a list. Or I may not understand how the relationship presentation works
  • Is there anyway to add a tag/category to multiple URL's at once? It took me quite a bit of time to add the few URL's and tags that I've done so far.
  • I see that there is a toolbar for IE, when is one coming for Firefox, Mosilla, Opera, Safari, etc? I don't use IE, except to test new CSS; so I'm not sure if the toolbar answers my above question.
  • Is the best use of Taghop to have accounts at, flikr, Bayosphere, your own blogs, and the like, and to use Taghop to relate among one's own various accounts, web use and online social networks? That is, I get the feeling that one shouldn't try to import all of their bookmarks or blogmarks to Taghop, but only general or personalized pages at other online services that use a tagging system.
  • How could Taghop help me achieve my goals of creating some "starting point" categories for our upcoming syndication aggregator/feed reader/blogging service and some more general categories for Bayosphere Citizen Journalists?
  • What are the different purposes of taghop.COM and taghop.ORG? How should we use each to best help taghop?

Steven, Taghop looks like an interesting project/product/service. Perhaps you could help us understand Taghop better, and answer my questions, via a post on your blog, with a tracback here. I look forward to conversing with you.

I'm Joseph A. di Paolantonio and this blog has two main foci: my interest in food, and my interest in the future. This provides a look into my personal life, and is separate from my consulting work…though there will be overlap. I am an independent researcher, working as a strategic consultant and I'm an executive with over 20 years of commercial experience with a technical interest in the intersection of Internet of Things, with advanced data management and analysis methods. I view data science as a team activity, and I feel that the IoT must be viewed as a system. I am leveraging my past activities to understand the adoption and impact of the IoT; first, as a system engineer in aerospace, where I developed Bayesian risk assessment methods for systems within the Space Transportation System (including the Space Shuttle), Extreme Ultraviolet Explorer, Gravity Probe B, and many more, and second, as a enterprise data warehousing, business intelligence and analytics professional. Between my aerospace and IT careers, I indulged my hobby of cooking by starting a food company, Montara Magic, centered around my chocolate sauces. My education combined chemistry, mathematics and philosophy. I performed research into molten salt fuel cells in graduate school, and in photovoltaic materials for a short time in industry. The lure of bringing the human race into space was strong, and when I was offered the chance to combine my chemistry and mathematics skills to develop new risk assessment and system engineering methods for space launch and propulsion systems – I couldn't resist. I perform independent research and strategic consulting to bring value from the Internet of Things, Sensor Analytics Ecosystems and data science teams.I am a caregiver, a lover of science fiction and speculative fantasy, and my passion to learn has led me to a pilot's license, an assistant instructor in SCUBA, nordic and alpine skiing, sea kayaking, and reading everything I can, in as many topics as I can.
