RSS Tutorial

Filed under: Internet,Technology; Author: Les Bain; Posted: March 22, 2008 at 9:30 pm;

I wrote and maintain an RSS Tutorial. I save RSS articles, products and services into an RSS link blog. Periodically, I review the articles and update the tutorial. I do not claim to be an expert; I wrote the tutorial so that I could learn RSS.

I am going through the update process now. The tutorial was written in 2005.

In 2005, the RSS issue that everyone was writing about was:

  • How to get people to use RSS.

In 2008, the issues are different.

  • How to control the influx of information that RSS provides. The products and services are RSS pipes, filters, and mashups.
  • How to expand RSS to multiple platforms. Products and services send RSS to Instant Messengers, iPhones, SMS, and email.
  • How to use RSS for more types of information. Use RSS to subscribe to calendar information, books, and friend information.
  • How RSS being used to increase Internet spam. Products and services scrape websites into RSS feeds to create spam websites. Ah well.
