It's even worse than it appears..
I have the Hello World feed template working. I still have to write docs. I expect to have that tomorrow. Still diggin! #

  • Note to outliner devs. Look at the outline elements in the RSS items. It's like podcasting, but instead of MP3s, it's outlines. Right there in the feed. So if you know how to render outlines, you can build more interesting kind of reader. News and tools for thought in one package, it's like a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup for ideas. A tools for thought feed reader. More LEGO-like building blocks. Don't worry there's more. 😄#
  • This is a demo outline#
    • Put here so it shows up in the feed#
    • So when you look, you'll see a little outline#
      • Not something overwhelming#
      • Just something simple#
    • So what's new with you?#
      • How about those Mets?#
    • There's talk of the Knicks signing Kyrie Irving#
      • Needless to say given all that I've written about him, I think that would be a bad idea.#
    • Some people enjoy watching WNBA games#
      • I've never actually watched one.#
      • I know they use a smaller ball#
      • I find that alarming#
    • Unfortunately if you read this post in a month or so, this outline won't be there.#
      • In the feed that is, it'll still be here in the archive.#
      • I know, I'll put a screen shot here. #
      • That should do it. #
    • That's it for now!#
    • Have a great day.#

You know those obnoxious sites that pop up dialogs when they think you're about to leave, asking you to subscribe to their email newsletter? Well that won't do for Scripting News readers who are a discerning lot, very loyal, but that wouldn't last long if I did rude stuff like that. So here I am at the bottom of the page quietly encouraging you to sign up for the nightly email. It's got everything from the previous day on Scripting, plus the contents of the linkblog and who knows what else we'll get in there. People really love it. I wish I had done it sooner. And every email has an unsub link so if you want to get out, you can, easily -- no questions asked, and no follow-ups. Go ahead and do it, you won't be sorry! :-)
