FeedLand has been great for me because I don't have to beg Google Reader (or its successors) to support a feature in RSS I want to try out. I just do it. And I can support it in my blog or any of my content-generating tools. This is how you bootstrap new standards. #
Now that you can use FeedLand without logging in, I'm going to start pointing to feeds using the FeedLand page for the feed. Previously I used the xmlviewer app. Mostly because browsers mangle XML text. For some reason they don't mind displaying JSON literally. (This may account for why some developers don't like XML. Anyway, there's a lot more information about the feed on the FeedLand page, and it's also set up so that if you are logged in, you can subscribe with one click. And of course I don't mind if you do. 😄#
BTW, this is a screen shot of what Chrome showz when I try to view my own RSS feed.#
Our new home should be built on RSS. We know how it works. We have the ability to produce billions of feeds at scale, and there is lots of software that interops Basically DNS, RSS and email.#
Welcome to November. Did the monthly ritual. Last month's OPML is archived and added to the search engine. #

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! :-)
