Two ways to subscribe to a blog, Twitter
 stream or any other stream of events


          You receive an email whenever a new
          item is posted.




          New items are periodically downloaded to
          your RSS reader.
RSS is really simple

Installed vs. browser-based RSS readers


                    A program you install on
                    your computer




                   A program that is
                   downloaded by your
                   Web client when you
                   visit the Google Reader
                   Web site
I use both



     Podcasts with audio or
     video enclosures




     Text based material like
     blog posts, tweets, and
     calendar notifications
Update frequency



        Juice checks feeds
        when you click the
        Check All command




        Google Reader checks
        your subscription feeds
        about once an hour
      Finding podcasts


National Public Radio

IT Conversations

TWIT TV


Many other directories and aggregators
      RSS feeds for any event stream
       for example when someone

•   Adds a new appointment to their calendar
•   Posts a reply to a forum post
•   Adds a record to a database
•   Places an order for a given product
•   Ships an order
•   Mentions your name in a company email
•   Posts an image on Flickr
•   Tweets
•   Visits a certain page on the company Web site
•   Mentions the company name on specified news sites
 Think of RSS as a tool to create a

Customized newspaper

Customized radio station

Customized business intelligence newsletter
A few questions
We listed several examples RSS event stream feeds. Can
you think of others?

Do any of the IT podcasts at TWIT TV or IT Conversations
sound interesting to you?

Do any of the general interest podcasts at National Public
Radio sound interesting to you?

Are there other podcast directories?
