Special Announcement: Microsoft announces it's support for RSS - It's an RSS platform in Longhorn
Guests: The Microsoft RSS Team Amr Gandhi, Jane Kim, and Walter Van Koch.
Host: John Furrier, Founder of PodTech.net
I had a chance to sit down with the Microsoft RSS team to have a candid InfoTalk™ on Microsoft's big announcment for RSS Support in Internet Explorer 7
platform - windows will now have an api that will mantain users subscriptions in one place that any browser or application that can tap into.
The notion of subscribe is how they view the RSS phenomenon - users don't get the multiple formats... all the users need to care about is subscribing. We're in the early days in terms of adoption of RSS. The challenge for the industry is to make the technologies freely available to users.
This announcment is a natural extension of the evolution of the Web. Phase I: browse; Phase II: search; Phase III: subscribe. Once you start subscribing you start sharing. This platform is for personal experiences and knowledge. The amount of creativity that can occur from developers and users will be massive.
more great information on the podcast..... a must listen for anyone interested on where RSS is heading and more importantly where Microsoft is heading.
