Paul Wilson has come up with a brilliant little Flash Lite app that brings Fullasagoog goodness to your mobile. Macromedia has recently added LAAG to their "Our Picks" category -- and not a moment too soon.
Fullasagoog has been syndicating Macromedia technology blogs in a host of languages for what seems like years. Thought I might mention how that's done as I've had a recent rush on requests to aggregate blogs that are already there.
Fullasagoog has been under fire from some quarters with regard to its policies on blog syndication. I've taken some time out to explain my position on these things in an effort to address a variety of misconceptions in some areas of the community.
Fullasagoog now aggregates Deutsche, English, Español, Français, Italiano, and Português blogs. Set your preferences to include the languages you want. This is really a service for folk who speak languages other than english and want to read everything in the same place. There are no magic translations here.
I've noticed a lot of strange results coming out of Google in recent weeks. Things appear to have stabilised now,...
I've been taking time on the weekend to check on the state of the "semantic web". The difficulty in getting content authors to agree upon and then use a common taxonomy of terms is very real. But I'm encouraged to see that there is good progress is getting machines to make semantic relationships for us.
Have been exchanging ideas on blog categorisation with a number of people, and got me hunting again for what other folk are up to out there on the internet to combat the noise-to-signal ratio. Of course my interests lie in adding value to the Goog content I aggregate.
Given the recent traffic in off topic posts from various blogs concerning the "Iraqi Conflict" we have received lots of complaints about the aggregated content. The overwhelming majority of people want to review MX technology related posts on the Goog and are happy to get their political content at the time of their choosing. This made me redouble my efforts to try and categorise inbound feeds at the level of the blog item, and give users that option.
Finally got round to documenting the Fullasagoog webservice -- luck I stumbled across a neat little set of methods for automating the process.
A snapshot of Fullasagoog's relationships with the rest of the web -- this fascinating insight into the world of Macromedia blogging was taken on 03-March-2003 using the GoogleBrowser tool.
Just a quick note to let folks know that FullAsAGoog has a webservice for repurposing the blended feed from the site. Feel free to use the webservice as you wish -- I would ask that people who want to use it for something serious let me know so I can warn you if I need to change the webservice in anyway.
I've spent some time playing with RSS/RDF XML this year playing with Fullasagoog.com. Recently, I released a series RDF feeds for the blogs fullasagoog syndicates to make life easier for folks with NewsAggregators and several groups who just wanted some of their blogs mixed into a single file. I thought I might take the time to show just how easy it is to generate XML feeds in CFMX.
Have finally gotten round to re-syndicating the blended Goog blog feed as RDF. So now you can use a standard NewsAggregator tool to read Fullasagoog, or repurpose the feed to your hearts content. Feeds updated on the hour.
