What’s in your ego feed?

I’m wondering what everyone searches for and watches in their ego search feed. My search (blended by FeedBlendr) reads: Blogdigger search for nicole engard, Technorati Search for:, Yahoo! Search: “nicole engard” or “nicole c. engard” or “nicole c engard”, Technorati Search for: “what i learned today” AND (nicole OR engard), Technorati Search for: nicole engard, BlogPulse Search Results for: nicole engard and Bloglines Search: “”. I’m wondering what other  [ Read More ]

More on Feed2JS

I am considering using Feed2JS on our intranet (after listening to Meredith & Paul at Internet Librarian) – I’m still going to give it a whirl, but I’ll be more cautious before I use it on any of our sites outside of the firewall after reading this warning from RSS4Lib. If you run your own copy of Feed2JS on your own server (rather than using Feed2JS’s public version), unscrupulous folks  [ Read More ]

Compare RSS Readers

If you’re still unsure of what RSS Aggregator to use, you might want to give CNET’s comparison chart & reviews a look. They offer a comparison chart for Bloglines, Rojo, Google Reader, FeedDemon, and Newsgator Inbox 2.6 for Outlook.

The RSS & JavaScript Cookbook

Meredith Farkas & Paul Pival gave a fun presentation on RSS (something I use tons of) & JS (something I don’t use much of). Using JS and RSS Paul & Meredith showed us how to create a dynamic subject page for your library site. The problem with traditional subject pages is that they aren’t updated often, they’re not easy to update (HTML required), and since no field is static a  [ Read More ]

SLA Newsreader

The Special Libraries Association (SLA) announced today that it has partnered with NewsGator to launch an online service that delivers RSS (Really Simple Syndication) feeds to the desktops of thousands of information professionals. This exclusive service is free only to members of SLA, and is available at as part of the SLA News Connections. I got a chance to have a peak at this new reader – it’s pretty  [ Read More ]

Bloglines & Mailing Lists

I don’t know if this is Bloglines or me. Yesterday, I imported the IL OPML a few times and deleted the folder over and over – I might have accidentally deleted my mailing lists folder!! Or Bloglines got rid of it – who knows. I’m a little annoyed either way because I had to email a lot of list owners to get my bloglines email subscribed to the lists –  [ Read More ]

RSS Site Map

How neat is that? I was visiting LookSmart’s Find Articles and saw a link at the bottom to the RSS Site Map – this is a site map of all of the RSS feeds available on the site. They also offer RSS Feeds for your search results. I was looking for Judith Siess and scrolled down to the bottom where I found the RSS Alert button for my search. Very  [ Read More ]

No Demo – My Pet Peeve

As you know, I’m always reading about new online tools. I like to try them out before I write about them (if I have time) – this brings me to my pet peeve. I don’t like it when I can’t see a demo (or screenshots) of a tool without first signing up. Today it’s xFruits which sounds pretty darn cool: xFruits is sweet! It's a suite of RSS services that's  [ Read More ]

RSS Unsafe

Well, what isn’t?? An online friend of mine sent me a link last week that talked about how subscribing to RSS feeds could be a security risk – today I found a similar article on Attackers could exploit the problem by setting up a malicious blog and enticing a user to subscribe to the RSS feed. More likely, however, they would add malicious JavaScript to the comments on a  [ Read More ]

I knew it!

As you know I have finally signed up for FeedBurner – but why the change? Well I was getting a little annoyed with depending on Bloglines to tell me how many subscribers I have. Bloglines was telling me that I had something like 28 subscribers – After 2 days FeedBurner says I have 79 (and I’m sure there are still more people who haven’t used the new feed URL yet).  [ Read More ]
