Feed of the day

November 30th, 2005

i got a note from James Gross at Feedster.com to say this site has been picked as Feed of the Day by Feedster.com. which seems to be an RSS-based version of blog search services like Technorati, Blogpulse and IceRocket.

Obviously, part of the implied social contract in such selections is a reciprocal plug, which I’m happy to provide, since I think RSS is a really big deal.

Following on from my previous post, I’m a bit dubious about the potential for RSS-based advertising, at least for general rather than product-oriented blogs, but Feedster seems to have the lead running in this field, and it will be interesting to see what they can do with it.

    Speaking of RSS — I have a feed off your site, but it seems to only show the first few lines. If I want to see the rest of it, I need to open the page.

    Is this intentional?

    I just selected the default feed. I’ll look into this.

    Is there a free RSS client that somebody here uses and recommends?

    There’s no contract of any sort, implied or otherwise, social (whatever that is) or otherwise, until you and the other party or parties come to an understanding and pull it all together.

    That means, while you might have a contract now you’ve jumped through all these hoops, you certainly didn’t have one just because they unilaterally did something in respect of you. Furthermore, it would be unwise for any of the rest of us to let that slide, in case one day they or others try to wish something of the sort on us.

    Now I come to think about it, isn’t that hidden within the ideas of social democracy anyway?

    I use Opera 8 (which is free). Just click on the RSS link on a site and it automatically signs you up. And of course, it’s a damn good browswer as well….

    However there are of course many others out there. But Opera is integrated.
