Dave Johnson on open web technologies, social software and Java
Nick Bradbury: when I'm coding away like a madman, I don't blog (or do much of anything else!)That's what happens to me too. For me it's this -- do I blog about the blog software I'm developing or do I continue to code? If I blog about those cool new Roller 3.0 features I'm working on, perhaps I won't finish them in time to get them into Roller 3.0. Fortunately for my blog, a mega-thunderstorm just rolled in and it's bad enough that I've shutdown my w2100z, unplugged my UPS and moved out to the porch to catchup on email and blogs.
WCF RSS Toolkit tutorial: The WCF RSS Toolkit is a Windows Communication Foundation-based framework for generating RSS 2.0 and Atom 1.0 content feeds. Using this toolkit, developers can easily expose a service as an RSS or Atom feed. The toolkit supports exposing a service as an RSS 2.0 feed, Atom 1.0 feed and SOAP endpoint simultaneously. The toolkit can also be extended to support other wire formats.The announcement is here. We held up the book (yes, this is shameless plug day on Blogging Roller) to cover the Windows RSS platform and now this, the server side of equation. Don't tell Manning about it or my summer will be ruined.
IBM press release: Rod Smith, IBM's vice president of emerging Internet technologies, declared that the technologies underpinning blogs, wikis and innovative sites like Google Maps and Wikipedia on the Web will transform the way productivity applications are developed...Nice to see IBM paying homage to blogs, wikis and feeds: the web 2.0 building blocks, but the press release is a bit nebulous. It's hard to tell if Smith is discussing an actual product, a "mashup server" as James Govenor put it, consulting services or just making reference to various IBM Web 2.0â¢ initiatives. If it is a server, I wonder if it's the effort that spawned the Abdera project.
...IBM's Enterprise Mashup blends external information and web services (e.g., news feeds, weather reports, maps, traffic conditions and more) with enterprise content and services, instantly "mashing" them together to create a fast, flexible and affordable application for specific business needs. Mashup, derived from the hip-hop practice of mixing song samples, are a website or applications that combine content from more than one source into an integrated user application using open technologies like Ajax, PHP and syndicated feeds (RSS or ATOM).

Jonathan Schwartz: you'll see something very interesting next week start to appear on Sun's web pages and throughout our on-line store. You'll start to see product reviews written by users.
