Feeds not Lists

11/23/04 | by JAdP | Categories: Information Mangement

William Vambenepe writes in his HP blog article "32K ought to be enough for everyone" about his frustrations stemming from limits in MS Outlook's Rules. My answer: use RSS instead.

I find that subscribing to news feeds (RSS, RSS1, RSS2, Atom) rather than email lists has made for a much more manageable stream of information. Wherever possible I've dropped my email subscription and signed up for the feed instead. I'm also lucky in that I use Newsgator, which provides an email address I can use for information I want that is still only offered through email lists. The email goes to that address and Newsgator turns it into a feed, that I read in Outlook or via Firefox (my browser of choice) or on my Palm's browser.

Managing the feed is easier than dealing with Outlook Rules and server-side rules that I used so that email lists didn't go to my main inbox, and the information is available wherever I need it or have the time to read it. Great stuff all around.

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.
