RSS and tagging are key to p2p collaboration over the Internet. Tags allow people to organize the information available through their distributed networks in ways that are meaningful to them, and social networking enables nodes in these networks to interact with each other according to how these tags and other folksonomic data overlap. When productive tags are identified, then RSS is used to monitor where web artifacts using those tags are accumulating, or being aggregated. This presentation will explore some of the ways that tagging can be used productively by people wishing to locate one another in order to discover more about each other's cultural and linguistic backgrounds. The WritingMatrix project will be used as an example of how basing interaction on tagging has enabled students in various parts of the world to interact with one another in the ways suggested here.

    • RSS and Tagging - Key to p2p collaboration over Internet
      • Tags allow us to
        • Categorize information available through distributed networks
        • Organize in personally meaningful ways
      • RSS used to
        • Monitor where web artifacts using productive tags are accumulating, or being aggregated
        • Track when content is added at any number of web sites and services
      Vance Stevens - Abu Dhabi UAE - Feb 13, 2008
    • RSS
      • Classic resources:
        • Will Richardson’s RSS Quick Start Guide for Educators http://weblogg-ed.com/wp-content/uploads/2006/05/RSSFAQ4.pdf
        • "RSS in very simple terms" by Lee and Sachi LeFever at http://www.commoncraft.com/rss_plain_english
      • Subscribing to feeds
        • Locate feed URL (small orange graphic shown here)
        • Paste URL into an aggregator, such as http://www.bloglines.com or http://reader.google.com
      Vance Stevens - Abu Dhabi UAE - Feb 13, 2008
    • Example of Google Reader Vance Stevens - Abu Dhabi UAE - Feb 13, 2008 http://www.google.com/intl/en/googlereader/tour.html

      Vance Stevens - Abu Dhabi UAE - Feb 13, 2008
      • In this example:
      • Use Technorati to locate all blog posts tagged ‘writingmatrix

    • Technorati vs. Del.ici.ous
      • Technorati http://technorati.com

        • Technorati scans the blogosphere for tags that appear in blog postings, which were put there by the person who created the post.
        • Del.icio.us allows users/viewers of blog posts and all other web artifacts to classify them according to ad hoc folksonomy
