Scoble’s feed is broken in Google Reader, it isn’t displaying line breaks and it’s making it almost impossible to read. It’s getting to the stage where I’m just about ready to unsubscribe cause of how annoying it is. Just thought I should give him the courtesy of letting him know.
Recent the Google Reader application has had a minor update, wherein when you are reading an individual feed using the spacebar key to scroll and you reach the end, it automatically takes you to the next feed. This is an awesome change and makes using this view far more useful.
I have posted before regarding the uptake of RSS in Australia. Since that last post, there has not been much more adoption of the technology, news.com.au still doesn’t have it (not even AustralianIT). None of this particularly surprises me, usually we have terrible uptake on good for the consumer developments.
What did surprise me was to see the prominance of RSS feeds on AFL.com.au, there are 2, one for the main stories and another for the Footy Blog. Having seen it on the footy website, I looked on Baggy Green and low and behold I see the little orange icon. Needless to say, I have subscribed.
It’s hard to describe how happy I am that news of the real world will now be flowing through my NewsReader.
So, Jeffrey Zeldman has moved his blog from hand-coding everything on the site every day, over to WordPress. This shows that the WordPress community is really moving in the right direction with the development. The other news here, that may be overshadowed is that he has also changed from summaries in his RSS feed, to full text. I bet Scoble will be happy.
