Atom Lightning Talk

  1. 1. Atom Web Syndication of Tomorrow A lightning talk by Bill Helman http://twitter.com/@thinkpol for Simmons GSLIS lis469 10, April 2010. http://www.flickr.com/photos/vatsug/1098895920/
  2. 2. Anatomy of a well formed log entry • In 2002 Sam Ruby started the discussion that would become the Atom standard by 2005. http://www.flickr.com/photos/92366800@N00/6541204/
  3. 3. Why a whole new standard? •RSS is a closed, proprietary, standard that has been frozen to “promote stability” http://www.flickr.com/photos/ell-r-brown/4210464265/
  4. 4. Some key differences •Atom is open, native in XML, more flexible, and has better encryption and aggregation than RSS. (+more.) http://www.flickr.com/photos/37753256@N08/
  5. 5. Kleenex : facial tissue :: RSS : syndication •RSS is so ubiquitous that it, and it’s logo, have come to mean web syndication http://www.flickr.com/photos/anniferrr/4473854085/
  6. 6. Atom: in the wild • Google, Twitter, and many others use a version of Atom. You may not even know a site does since it may just display the RSS name/logo. http://www.identi.ca/thinkpol http://www.flickr.com/photos/21148821@N02/2057325287/
