NBC Sucks!

Judging from the edited previous post, you should be able to tell that NBC has now threatened me with legal action for exposing the fact that they are not supporting the SendMeRSS users anymore. I removed any specifics only to avoid any legal problems with them. But take my advice, if you are using SendMeRSS as a publisher, then you could be screwing your readers, and if you are using SendMeRSS as a client, then you'd best NOT!

You want an incident report, then check this out.

Please reblog so that we can pressure NBC into supporting the SendMeRSS users.

Bye Bye SendMeRSS

For those that don't know, my relationship with NBC ended in June and I'm no longer maintaining the SendMeRSS website. [cut]

Let me begin by apologizing to all the old Rmail users. [cut]

Again, sorry it didn't work out.

RSS Advisory Board Chair

Hey guest what? I'm the chair of the RSS advisory board. Wow! I'd really like to thank Rogers for doing a great job during these last two years. We finally got some peace under his leadership and lot done; including needed clarifications on the spec, an RSS profile and an autodiscovery spec. Thanks Rogers. Hopefully, I'll do as well going forward.

Thanks also to those that helped make this happen. Rogers, of course. Dave Winer for getting me into RSS in the first place, creating the board and for putting the thought in my head of joining the board. Then there's all the other members of the RSS board, who've all been supportive of what we are doing. And then there's you the readers of The RSS Blog, who kept my interest all these years. Thanks all!

PSS and FeedState

Please excuse the emptiness of this blog, as I've been on vacation for the last month. Now that I'm back, I'm getting ready for a great autumn for RSS. Once I get back in the saddle, I've got two things I want done.

Maybe we can get people talking about RSS again.
