What gives for RSS?

Thanks to continuing stimuli from the Blogging for Educators workshop, it has dawned on me (or is about to) that RSS feeds will soon replace most, if not all, cross-links as conjunctive interfaces among: blogs, webpages, and wikis (and whatever else is out there that serves up RSS feeds). The transition from links to feeds may delineate moves from Web 1.x to Web 2.n.

As long as display space is available on your home page, for instance in Flock (a browser [thanks to Mary H. for turning me on to Flock a year or so ago]), Google or Yahoo! readers, PageFlakes, or a host of other RSS feed aggregators; links will serve only a subordinate function: Click and see, instead of see and click.


  1. Hi Paul,
    I'm glad to hear that you found Flock useful! Isn't it great to share information with each other? By the way, as I prepared the Blogging4Educators blog post for this week, I found myself checking your instructions that you shared with the Learning with Computers group for working with images in Blogger blog posts (message 3859)

  2. Iiopps, Mary!

    Good on you all for sharing information, ideas, opinions, opportunities, and strategies to learn with and from others in the B4E workshop. The networks go on and on.

    Cheers, Paul
