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?
Just in time for the elections, Newsgator has released some election widgets. Check 'em out!
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.
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.
Read and enjoy. More to follow. I promise. Note to self: Set alarm to kick my ass every morning.
