Google Reader redesign

 # [via]

It's fantastic -- Gmail for RSS. If Bloglines hadn't just made their only decent upgrade in months, I'd be switching. I still will if the Google people integrate some means of easily re-blogging to del.icio.us &c.

Bloglines: Feed Access Control for RSS and Atom

 #

Defines <access:restriction relationship="allow" /> and deny to declare whether or not the feed can be re-published, made available to search etc.

I imagine there are many people syndicating "private" feeds through Bloglines and inadvertently making them public.

Simple Sharing Extensions for RSS and OPML

 #

The objective of Simple Sharing Extensions (SSE) is to define the minimum extensions necessary to enable loosely-cooperating apps

  1. to use RSS as the basis for item sharing – that is, the bi-directional, asynchronous replication of new and changed items amongst two or more cross-subscribed feeds.

  2. to use OPML as the basis for outline sharing – that is, the bi-directional, asynchronous replication of outlines, such as RSS aggregators' subscription lists

Just today I decided I needed an OPML extension like this for a project. How lovely to unexpectedly find a link to it while reading about some random and completely unrelated topic.

Google Reader

 #

Google's new RSS reader. Excellent if you read entire every feed to which you subscribe; bad if you skim headings, leave some to collect dust for months on end, etc. Great built-in player for podcasts.

FanFiction.net adds per-user Atom feeds

With luck they'll add C2 or list view feeds, but this is still a great alternative to the Author Alert system. I can see it murdering the servers with extra load, though.

ANU Library New Books RSS

Implemented badly, but it's something.

Small things, links and miscellany, sparkling with light. Sam's tumblelog.
