  • Putting Interactivity into RSS
    ads for v gr and online casinos With a RSS reader you can keep track of many more sites than you otherwise could As of today I have 57 feeds coming into mine and I ve been told I m a piker compared to some who have hundreds But the trade off is that you aren t as invested in each of the feeds Worse it takes considerable effort to actually visit the feeder site to comment on an entry Or to see if others have commented As they currently work RSS readers and indeed the whole RSS system itself widens the gap between writer and readers between post and response RSS isn t designed for interactivity it s designed to display text and images in an agnostic Simple way You can of course although not easily embed a link to your comments in your RSS feed or have a separate feed for your comments an asinine solution IMHO This still breaks up the dialogue that should naturally occur Imagine if we were having a face to face conversation and I said I think so and so is a moron but you couldn t respond until you d gone into another room and changed clothes That s what the current solutions are like The problem is that RSS feeds are usually generated right after posts are published ie before anyone can comment on them Thus naturally there can be no indication that a post has generated discussion because there isn t any yet Either RSS the RSS generator or the RSS readers ideally some combination of all three need to be smarter The RSS generator has to generate the feed several times a day and include comments or some indicator that there are comments into the same feed The RSS

  • 9/11: Year Three | O Danny Boy
    obscured by smoke The tower collapsing slowly in bits and the glimpse the horrible glimpse for just a moment of the perfect blue sky there in the place the tower once stood The men in suits trudging up Broadway covered in ash moving like zombies The plume of brown smoke rising up over the tip of the city like some monstrous hand and index finger pointing down to the devastation The thousands fleeing the city on foot over the bridges The signs of the missing on walls and telephone poles The flowers at the firehouse I used to walk past each morning The gap in the skyline so jarring looking down 8th Avenue The smell too is still immediately accessible to me an acrid stench of burning tires and smoldering plastic and charred flesh and hair It lingered for weeks riding on the crisp autumnal air through the streets of New York Ill winds My daughter s fourth birthday is tomorrow so like every year there is little time for grieving what with the party preparations and the last minute gifts to buy This hastily written remembrance will have to suffice I have to keep looking forward and maybe that s for the best I have that luxury Let us never forget the 3 000 people who do not 11 September 2004 Dan Post navigation Blog Database Hosed Model Trains and the Design of Interactive Systems One thought on 9 11 Year Three dclittle says 6 October 2004 at 11 45 pm You were there I wasn t yet through TV I most certainly WAS Your hastily written remembrance contains words that aptly describe the emotions that for me words couldn t even describe I m glad that you mentioned your daughter s fourth birthday For us 9 11 was
