Steven Black has started self-publishing an RSS 2.0 Feed for the
FoxForum wiki, using a Web Connection routine that generates the RSS
on-demand, I think. It’s hard to tell, because he’s not including
the optional “lastBuildDate” in the channel header.
Steven and I made some different design decisions in how we formed the
feeds that are educational to look at. Steve stuffs nearly the entire
content into the feed. This certainly provides a richer stream, and
means he doesn’t have to serve the content twice. On the other hand, I
prefered to serve a “light” feed, that would encourage traffic to his
site, since I didn’t want to take away from any revenue-raising efforts
he has on the site. In addition, I can easily skim the headlines
of the site, and then navigate to the topics I’d like to read, and
UPDATE: Steve’s modified the feed with optional parameters so you can get shorter descriptions or none at all. Bravo!
