Russell Beattie Notebook – mOlympics Banner for your Weblog:

“I got inspired just now while checking out RSS Calendar – a new
calendaring service that uses RSS feeds to distribute the scheduling info. One
of the cool features is the ability to include your calendar on your web page
just by including some JavaScript. I thought of something like this for
mOlympics a few days ago but had forgotten about it. Seeing how the RSS Calendar guys did it made me realize how simple it is to do so I once again copy-pasted the basic query page, slapped some document.write(“)lines in there and *poof* I have a web-service! Unlike RSS Calendar, though, I didn’t use tables, but just the XHTMLized divs I already had hanging around. To put mOlympic headlines on your site include the following code… [see link above]”

Udell on Information routing

August 17, 2004

“It helps enormously that purely selfish interest is a sufficient reason use del.icio.us…. as I process my daily RSS inflow in Bloglines, it’s very much in my own interest to put the few items of most value in a place where I can find them later. That I’m also putting them someplace where you can find them, that you may be doing the same thing for me, that we may collectively move toward standardized use of shared topics as we iterate this process, that reputation-based filtering may then begin to operate on the emergent set of topics — all this is goodness, and may ultimately matter, but my participation (and yours) does not depend on these outcomes. Pure self-interest is a sufficient driver. …”

FlashMeeting 2 with cool replay

August 17, 2004

If FlashMeeting 2 isn’t the bee’s knees, then I don’t know what is. The replay capability, shown on the right, is actually described separately on the CNM Memo page, but is part of the same technology family.

Other super-cool features, not yet widely available, include the ability for me to ‘quick-book’ just-in-time meetings directly via a chatbot, handily available on my Jabber buddy list… neato! One-line command (indeed one-word command) does the trick, and then I’ve got a URL I can broadcast to my buddies to join the meeting with one click: no downloads, no installation, no setup, and way simpler than Breeze-y stuff, though based on the same underlying technology.

Congrats to Jon Linney and Kevin Quick on Peter Scott’s awesome team!
