Micro... soft on gay policy-making

Here's a story that won't go away anytime soon...

The pastor leading the charge in Seattle is Ken Hutcherson, who has been to Indianapolis many times advocating for multiracial churches. He's on the board at Crossroads Bible College here in Indy.

RSS Feeds

by Brian Groce, Technologist
"The Musings of Brian Groce"

What is RSS?

When people refer to RSS they are usually refering to a file located on a website (usually blogs) that contains information about recent posts that can be used by RSS aggregators (explained below).

RSS is somewhat of a generic term similar to how people use the word kleenex instead of facial tissue. Underneath it all, it's really just an implementation of a structured language called XML.

On websites RSS feeds are usually labeled one of the following:

Why RSS?

Bottom line, time saving.

When used with an RSS aggregator (a.k.a. "feed reader"), RSS will save you a tremendous amount of time by checking all of your subscribed feeds for updates. If a site has been updated, you'll be notified. This beats having to go to every website to see if there has been an update, only to find a few that have been updated.

How to use RSS

First, pick an aggregator. These come in desktop and online varieties (see list below). Try multiple aggregators out to see which one you like the best.

Then start adding feeds and checking the aggregator periodically.

Free RSS Aggregators

Here are some free RSS aggregators. I personally recommend RSS Bandit, Sauce Reader & SharpReader.

RSS Feeds

Here are some RSS feeds to get you started.

City Wi-Fi Boon or Boondoggle?

[excerpt from In The Agora]

"My first reaction to this was "Wow, this is really cool!" Imagine being able to go anywhere in a city and be connected to the net. The idea is hardly new--many college campuses are blanketed in a Wi-fi network--but this would be the largest implementation of the concept in the U.S. For information on other large scale Wi-fi projects, visit MuniWireless.com.

The catch, though, is that the proposed system is entirely government-run."

Internet Evangelism Day... April 24th

[excerpted from ChristianToday.com]

Haggard also encouraged "all evangelical leaders to take advantage of this initiative and explore their options for using the web to win as many as possible to Christ."

Churches and ministries can take part in the IED by making use of the event web site, which includes downloadable video clips, drama sketches, a PowerPoint presentation and stories of people who have come to a personal relationship with Jesus Christ through online ministry.

Many well-known individuals and organisations have given their full backing to the initiative. The International Director of the Lausanne Committee for World Evangelisation, Dr Tetsunao Yamamori has said that he believes the day will enable online outreach to be advanced and is an innovative response to today’s hi-tech world. He said, "It is possible to evangelise one billion people through this medium."

[D. James Kennedy] The President and founder of Evangelism Explosion International said that he hopes "every E(vangelism) E(xplosion) church would be involved in the Internet Evangelism Day."

Surprise! Apple adopts Windows Media for iTunes, iPod...

Maybe the iPod isn't dead after all.

What does it 'say' when Apple starts cooperating with the rest of the world? Can Christian collaboration be far behind? **smile**
