Apple is adding feed syndication podcatcher capability to iTunes. This served as a central theme for the return of the Gillmor Gang on May 28th. As a tangent to the converstaion, the Gang discussed the ability - or lack thereof - of the Apple iPod to take full advantage of RSSv1, RSSv2 and Atom feed syndication. Of course, the iPod has no OS/API/applications to do this.

"Looking at other implications of the iTunes announcement. Doesn't this also mean that with RSS, that the iPod is much further along in it's being the total multipurpose device? You know... What's to say that you wouldn't be able to, on the disk, have all the things that you might subscribe to via RSS, in that device and you might then plug into headphones or into a TV screen? Well..."end quotation

No doubt the iPod is great, but its main job is to play m4p files. If you want the ability to grab your feeds no matter the media, how about the Palm Lifedrive or one of these from the Daily Wireless article "WiFi MP3 Players". So, forget the iPod and get a machine that let's you get to all your feeds, podcast, songs, blogs, vlogs, news, and whatever comes next.

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.
