We're incredibly excited to introduce a new type of user on Superfeedr today: trackers. As you probably know, publishers are applications, like Medium or Etsy, which decided to host their PubSubHubbub hub with Superfeedr. Subscribers, on the other end, are applications which consume our feed API ...

Got a blog? You know what's missing? A follow button!
  A few days ago, someone said: “Over 1 billion people on the Internet read news. What % of those people use RSS? What % know what it is?” Later tweets showed that the original intention was clearly to dismiss RSS as one of the key elements of today’s open web. Yet, I believe that …

I think it's cool that you can use dots. firstname.lastname shouldn't become firstnamelastname as you suggest at the end of the blog post. Now the fact gmail ignores dots is - indeed - annoying while geekingly charming...

Les systèmes décentralisés sans tiers de confiance, un renouveau pour les protocoles électoraux~? Les systèmes de vote jouissent dans de nombreux pays d'un usage si ancien qu'ils paraissent aussi immuables que les institutions politiques et culturelles. Mais à l'évidence, alors que le nombre des ...

XMPP services are able to perform the same functionality as clients, so with PubSub, a newsfeed XMPP service can subscribe to Atom and other XML sources on other services.

There's no reason to use a different protocol/API for this, it just complicates your work with more middleware.

This is a very interesting post. Thanks Louis. I agree blogs still provide a better "ownership" of the content. I'm not talking (just) about legal issues and copyright, but also the fact that on blog, the writer defines the rules: the lenght of posts, the links, the images, ... the general look and feel. A blog is your house.

One things that blogs do poorly which platforms like G+, Facebook or Twitter do well is distribution. There's no "following", "reshare", "+1" by default on blogs and yet, these are the mechanisms which will send your content to people interesting in reading it.

I wish we wouldn't be stuck in a world where you have to either own or distribute your content, but right now, that's what it feels.
Five or so years ago, the idea that one of the most visible bloggers would walk away from their website and completely move their presence to a third party network would have been a step short of scandalous. In fact, when top...

None of those platforms are built to support 500+ word content either. It's very much focused on photo sharing and real time engagement. Blogging is forever.

Worst bar ever. I joined a couple friends who were celebrating a bday. They invited me at the last minute. When I got there, theeir table was full, so I sat at the table next to it. the waitress came to me and said I could not sit there because another party could show up at any time and they wanted to have the table available. This was a 4 people table, and there was another 4 people table available as well as a 6 person table and a 2 person table. I could not stand either because I would be blocking the way. Finally, this place smells like transpiration so much that you could easily regret the time when it was allowed to smoke in bars. Don't go.
