Karlin Lillington: "Just over a year ago my friend Maura lost her beloved sister Anne, one of the Irish 9/11 victims in the Twin Towers."
Blogroots thread on RSS evolution. Some interesting points of view; a mostly respectful discussion, so far. The key to deciding the issue for the best is to avoid ad hominems, they distract from the real issues, which really aren't that complicated.
Straw is a desktop news aggregator for the GNOME environment. I got an interesting email from the author of the program, Juri Pakaste, asking if it made sense to add features to RSS 2.0 that link to a blogroll and a list of subscriptions. My philosophy is that yes if it makes sense to Juri, then I think it's cool. Why? Because he's out there developing software for the format, and he's friendly about it (even though it competes with my own software). It's only because we are trying to work out a compromise that I don't just add the features to the 2.0 spec right now, and add support for it to the Radio serializer. In other words, we could move a lot faster if we didn't try to placate our critics. (And lots of luck with that, I don't think they're looking to settle.)
Here's a test version of the RSS 2.0 serializer for Radio 8.
Syndic8 tracks RSS feeds by language, RSS versions, change dates, toolkits, etc. It'll be interesting to see 2.0 feeds show up as people start trying the new serializer in Radio, and other blogging tools start to offer 2.0 serialization.
The author of Amphetadesk, Kevin Hemenway, comments on the allowed link and url types in RSS 2.0, that derive from the same requirements in RSS 0.91.
Adam Curry: "There's only one thing I dislike more than missing a day on my weblog, is when Dave misses a day on his." I love that sentiment, but it's good for me to take a day off every so often. Smell the roses, invent new stuff, make new friends, etc etc.
