Technology In The Wild

  1. 1. Technology in the Wild RSS Blogs Podcasts Friend Feed
  2. 2. RSS <ul><li>(Really Simple Syndication) A syndication format that was developed by Netscape in 1999 and became very popular for aggregating updates to blogs and the news sites. RSS has also stood for &quot;Rich Site Summary&quot; and &quot;RDF Site Summary.&quot; </li></ul><ul><li> </li></ul>

  4. 4. Blog <ul><li>(2) (WeBLOG) A Web site that contains dated text entries in reverse chronological order (most recent first) about a particular topic. Blogs serve many purposes from online newsletters to personal journals to &quot;ranting and raving.&quot; Written by one person or a group of contributors, entries contain commentary and links to other Web sites, and images and videos as well as a search facility may be included </li></ul>

  6. 6. Podcast <ul><li>(i POD broad CAST ) An audio broadcast that has been converted to an MP3 file or other audio file format for playback in a digital music player. Although many podcasts are played in a regular computer, the original idea was to listen on a portable device; hence, the &quot;pod&quot; name from &quot;iPod.&quot; Although podcasts are mostly verbal, they may contain music, images and video.      Just like news feeds, podcasts are made available to people via a syndication format. Users install a media aggregator program in their computers such as iTunes or Juice. Also called a &quot;podcatcher,&quot; the application captures the audio feeds from the Internet for downloading to the music player. </li></ul><ul><li> </li></ul>

  8. 8. Friend Feed <ul><li>FriendFeed enables you to keep up-to-date on the web pages, photos, videos and music that your friends and family are sharing. It offers a unique way to discover and discuss information among friends. Sign up for FriendFeed , invite some friends, and get a customized feed made up of the content that your friends shared — from news articles to family photos to interesting links and videos. FriendFeed automatically imports shared stuff from sites across the web, so if your friend favorites a video on YouTube , you get a link and a thumbnail of the video in your feed. And if your friend likes a news story on Digg , you get a link in your feed. FriendFeed makes all the sites you already use a little more social. </li></ul>
