RSS Magic – Content for All
Session Description: Ever wondered how to pull in content from blogs, news sources, web searches into a convenient bundle of content you can share as a subscribable link (RSS feed) or embed in a web page? This session will explore the how-to of RSS Magic with Google Reader RSS Bundles. You can use Google Reader RSS Bundles to “bundle” content available as RSS from various sources and put them in one convenient, easy-to-share package.
Wow, time has sure passed quickly! Tomorrow (October 27th), I’ll be presenting on the topic of RSS Magic at the GoogleApps Summit in TCEA Area 20. This is a free conference and I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to facilitate a student panel and present on an obscure subject, Real Simple Syndication (RSS). 😉
