Google Analytics Tracking API

This website was selected to be part of Google's limited beta of their Event Tracking API. Read more. I doubt I'll participate. Don't have time. Don't know why they picked me. Usual laziness excuses.

Feed My Inbox

I just discovered Feed My Inbox, a new RSS to email service that is trying to fill the void left by SendMeRSS. "Feed My Inbox" was actually a trademark of Rmail, but I doubt NBC is paying attention.

RSS and email

Out of curiousity, I searched Google for RSS and email. Turns out Rmail-SendMeRSS was 3 of the 5 top results (results may vary). SendMeRSS is now dead and twice now people have asked if I had the old Rmail code and if I could just recreate Rmail. Unfortunately, it's not that simple. I thru away the code and even if I could find an old backup, I wouldn't feel right about re-using code I sold to NBC. Nevertheless, I could rewrite Rmail in a few days (given the free time). With SendMeRSS finally gone (what a horror story), I'm considering adding RSS-2-email services to Reblinks and polishing it off. Thoughts?

BlogBurst Extended Syndication

Pluck is launching a new paid syndication service using their BlogBurst brand that offers the publishers a percentage share of revenue for ad-supported re-syndication. This appears to be similar to Voxant.

RSS in 2008

I'm ashamed to admit that I haven't done enough these first few months as chair of the RSS advisory board. I've been very busy (lame excuse). Steve Rubel wrote a couple posts that has convinced me to take up arms against the non-believers.
