Iâ€™ve written before that I love reading my RSS feeds, but I often get behind and end up missing a lot. The more I think about it, itâ€™s like the morning newspaper. It appears in the morning and is packed with interesting information that could benefit me during the day. But, if the newspaper goes straight to recycle bin, I experience no pain. The big point here is that reading RSS feeds can be a positive, but missing them doesnâ€™t create a negative, for me at least. Yesterdayâ€™s news is... Continue Reading
Kathleen Gilroy posted recently about a vision of the future of RSS: Imagine a universal portal (public or internal for corporate use) that does nothing more than help people to collect feeds that will help them learn about subjects they care about. I think sheâ€™s onto something and Iâ€™ll relate her point to a project Iâ€™m working on now: Iâ€™m working with a start-up called mpire here in Seattle. Mpire is building an online application that makes life easier for small businesses that use... Continue Reading
Iâ€™ve posted before about trying to figure out how to manage all my RSS feeds (read the comments) . Unfortunately I donâ€™t get paid to read them and when I get busy, they build up, making me feel like Iâ€™m missing something. They mock me, those feeds, I swear. I really want to keep up because it makes me aware and more informed. When they build up, I just nuke the whole bunch and start from scratch. Blowing off a few days of feeds makes me feel guilty and a bit liberated at the same time.... Continue Reading
Chris is saying that there is bigger news that Google's recent announcement about site-targeted ads. He sees evidence of Adsense in RSS feeds... This could be big...
So Iâ€™m convinced that RSS is taking over the online world. I think there are two types of Internet users, those who use some type of RSS aggregator and those who will. I personally use NewsGator Online and I subscribe to 75 feeds, which is not a lot by some standards and Iâ€™m talking to you Scoble. Lately Iâ€™ve been thinking about how I can become a better RSS reader. With all this information emerging, how can I understand/organize/use RSS in a way that maximizes its potential? I feel...

A new company called Nooked is creating a (beta) directory of corporate RSS feeds. The basic premise is that companies will be publishing news more and more using RSS. As RSS publishing becomes a standard over the next couple of years, Nooked hopes to be the source for finding and organizing RSS feeds for companies and industries youâ€™d like to watch. Here are some first impressions... I like the idea. It's a bit of a crap shoot right now to find RSS feeds for companies and industries... Continue Reading
I'm claiming my feed here, again I think...talk amongst yourselves. No Need to Click Here - I'm just claiming my feed at Feedster
Nevon has me thinking about Podcasting in business. In big companies, particularly older ones Iâ€™ve found, some of the executives take on a star quality among the rank and file folks. The executive word is gospel and they tell stories about the time the VP came to their meeting and they got to talk them. They got to meet the real person behind the name and the title. Podcasting may be capable of putting that feeling in the back pocket of a wide variety of employees one day. Hereâ€™s an *... Continue Reading
Moonwatcher (a blog about the emerging enterprise RSS market) pointed to a post by Greg Reinacker's where Greg lays out a roadmap for enterprise RSS, among other things. Greg founded and runs NewsGator, which is my personal favorite RSS reader. NewsGator is working on a product they call "Dino", which is an "Newsgator Enterprise Server". Here is Greg's description: Dino could be characterized as "NewsGator Enterprise Server", for lack of a better name. Imagine NewsGator Online, picked up... Continue Reading
Six months to a year ago I felt like RSS was just about to go mainstream. It seemed to be everywhere. While I do think it will become a standard eventually, I still don't hear many non-geeks singing the praises of RSS. Part of the problem is that it is hard to describe in a way that relates the value. I've tried many times and people don't get it. That's why I was happy to see CNet make a short video (linked on the right) describing how RSS works, how it can save time, and why it's... Continue Reading
