82. Demonstrating Your Credibility

Six Apart ProNet Weblog, News, 14 KB, 137 words

Though Microsoft's Partners program is a bit afield of most of what we cover on ProNet, many of the main concepts apply to systems integrators, consultants, and developers who build on blog platforms as well.

One of the latest of their articles, which is available even to those who aren't members of the Microsoft Partner Program, is a piece called Demonstrate Yoru Credibility. In it, Rick Freedman discusses the differences between going in to a client meeting to talk about your credentials and going in to a meeting to actually show your qualifications. It's a good prompt to re-examine some communications techniques that can always use polishing.

95. Researching Dynamic Feeds

Don't Back Down, News, 7 KB, 320 words

I've recently been tossing around some ideas about dynamically creating syndication feeds for the blog. Most specifically I've been trying to figure out how to best keep up with comments on a particular entry. By default, the only solution is to come back and check again later. Even having a new comment list or an entire feed devoted to comments seem to be extreme solutions that wouldn't quite solve the problem.

I read up on the scriptygoddess solution to allow users to subscribe to a comment thread via email. It's a nice solution, but I don't think it's as elegant as I'd like. I don't want to keep an email list on the site. I also get too much email already and would like to cut...

96. Unsubscribing from the publisher's side

Six Apart ProNet Weblog, News, 14 KB, 108 words

Dave Winer raises some good questions about the proper way for those who are publishing XML feeds to force unsubscriptions for readers, and Nick Bradbury points out a fairly clean solution that has the advantage of already being implemented in the wild.

Publishers should simply an HTTP Status 410: Gone code, and the aggregator or syndication client will know to do the proper thing and unsubscribe. The next version of Nick's tool FeedDemon is scheduled to add this support.

98. IETF Last Call for Atom

Six Apart ProNet Weblog, News, 14 KB, 107 words

The IETF has just put out its last call, a key milestone on the road to The Atom Syndication Format becoming an official standard.

If you've given the Working Group your feedback on the current draft, you might want to check out Steve Jenson's atomfeed Python library or if you're working in Perl, you might want to check out our own Mark Paschal's Atom::Filter, which makes it easy to manipulate Atom feeds at the command line.
