  • AtomEnabled.org - a simple way to read and write information on the web, allowing you to easily keep track of more sites in less time, and to seamlessly share your words and ideas by publishing to the web.

  • AtomOwl Vocabulary Specification - an ontology whose aim is to capture the semantics of rfc4287. RFC4287 is a format to syndicate online content, such as weblogs, podcasts, videocasts, etc. Syndication is a helpful way to alert interested readers to changes to a web site, be it to new content or changed content. As AtomOwl captures the semantics of rfc4287 it is easy to convert rfc4287 feeds to AtomOwl statements and thus add them to a triple database, which can the be queried using a SPARQL endpoint. This should then help make very powerful searched for updated content possible.

  • Rss20AndAtom10Compared - Atom Wiki - People who generate syndication feeds have a choice of feed formats. As of mid-2005, the two most likely candidates will be RSS 2.0 and Atom 1.0. The purpose of this page is to summarize, as clearly and simply as possible, the differences between the RSS 2.0 and Atom 1.0 syndication languages.

  • What is a River of News aggregator? - "a kind of RSS aggregator. Items are presented in reverse-chronologic order. Each item has a headline, short description, a link to the story, links to the website and feed it came from, a link to its enclosure if it has one, when it was published, when it appeared in the river. It does not have the full text of the article. Text is truncated to less than 500 characters. Markup is removed from the description text. If more than one item from a feed is gathered in a single read of the feed, they are grouped together, so that the feed information is not repeated for each item. Browsing via the vertical scrollbar

When a browser loads a page and discovers that a feed is available, Firefox and Internet Explorer display the common feed icon in the address bar.

  • RFC 5005 - Feed Paging and Archiving - Syndicated Web feeds (using formats such as Atom) are often split into multiple documents to save bandwidth, allow "sliding window" access, or for other purposes. This specification formalizes two types of feeds that can span one or more feed documents; "paged" feeds and "archived" feeds. Additionally, it defines "complete" feeds to cover the case when a single feed document explicitly represents all of the feed's entries.

Also, it is trivial to add output handlers which can pipe feed entry data to any service you use. [9]

By splitting feed parsing and displaying posts into separate parts, a reader app can focus on presenting posts to the user instead of also having to parse feeds. A Microsub server manages the list of people you're following and collects their posts, and a Microsub app shows the posts to the user by fetching them from the server.
