Feeds Syndication

02/16/05 | by JAdP | Categories: General Thoughts

Three recent articles about feeds syndication came to my attention today. What struck me is that they all concetrate on just one type of RSS, Really Simple Syndication, ignoring the other RSS and Atom.

I've already written about these three Blog Reading Tools, though these XML based syndication protocols are useful for more than blogs.

  • wiki(RDF_Site_Summary,RSSv1) - Rich Document Format or Resource Description Framework (RDF) Site Summary
  • wiki(Really_Simple_Syndication,RSSv2) - Really Simple Syndication
  • wiki(Atom_%28standard%29,Atom) - a syndication protocol similar to the various versions of RSS, but aims to be more flexible

They are all extremely useful for keeping track of any web-based, XML based, or web service [SOA] data (structured), content or media (unstructured) that is frequently updated.

I went to Blogging about [Incredible] Blogs from our TIA Life Blogroll/Linkblog while taking a break from the proposal we're writing. Ken Leebow's article there pointed me to the article by Jonathan Dube in Poyneter Onlne and to Kevin Laws' article in VentureBlog [Venture Blog is on our Business Life Blogroll, but Ken got me there first] &#59;) And this also shows up the power of blogs, wikis and feeds syndication - the interwoven links.

All of these articles, as well as the ones to which they link, make very good points about how feeds syndication protocols are providing new tools for distributing content as well as leading towards new business models, or revamping current models [such as viral marketing].

I haven't seen any indication that RSSv2 is becoming the front-runner in feeds syndication. Especially, as the Google family has adopted Atom. So, I'll ask the question: "Is RSS becoming the generic term?" It is a bit more complicated than asking for a Kleenex and getting a Puffs' facial tissue instead. We support all three with the open source basis of the TeleInterActive Press and related services, so Scott's, Puffs or Kleenex all work for us. It will be very interesting to see how this plays out over the next two years.

Thank you for turning me on to Blogging about Incredible Blogs. I just spent 3-hours there. It’s got some amazing resource information.

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.
