Added rssCloud to my weblog feed

This is my first post with rssCloud enabled. It’s not that hard, if you’ve have created the infrastructure already. The infrastructure can be found on github: github/pompiedom-rsscloud and github/pompiedom-ping.

Let's start a programming news network

I have been building a system of posting short posts on top of RSS and rssCloud. This system helps people to create link blogs and short posts about anything they like.

Microblogging DIY

I am building my own microblogging tool. It uses RSS and RSScloud to get realtime updates from the web. Tonight I got it working and now I need some feeds to parse. Yesterday I already saw that Identi.ca provides RSScloud feeds, so I tried one of them out. The first feed I added was my own. The test to see if it worked was posting a message to my account. And … a post appeared in my microblogging client in realtime....
