Today's a big shipping day

Sunday, September 20, 2009 by Dave Winer.

I didn't plan it this way, but a lot of stuff is ready all at once. Permalink to this paragraph

Over the day I'll link them in here. They will also appear in various other places such as the rssCloud mail list, on Twitter, and I'm not sure where else.  Permalink to this paragraph

1. A rssCloud walkthrough for publishers. This doc is a shortcut for publishers so they don't have to wade through the michegas that cloud and aggregator developers do. A picture named sidesmiley.gif Permalink to this paragraph

2. A self-documenting OPML reading list of real-time photo feeds. Lots of new stuff working here. I also added a photo feed for television, in anticipation of the Emmies tonight. Permalink to this paragraph

3. DNS for RSS feeds. I have a proof of concept app up, for you to try out and comment on. Permalink to this paragraph

N. And last but not least, and I had nothing to do with this one -- the Scobles shipped another Scobleizer last night. Baby and mommy are happy and healthy, and according to daddy, cute. Happy birthday Ryan! It's nice to have you on board for this crazy thing we call life. Permalink to this paragraph
