Future Windows to include RSS support



[excerpted from OrangeJack]

You may not know what RSS is right now, or even care. But you will know soon. [continued at OrangeJack]

************************************************

"Why Feed RSS to the Aggregators?"

************************************************
[excerpted from Yahoo/AP]

Microsoft Corp. said Friday that the next version of its Windows operating system will have built-in support for Internet data feeds, an increasingly popular way to get news and other information channeled straight to a computer.

RSS, short for Really Simple Syndication, hasn't broken into widespread use yet, but the world's largest software maker believes it will become a mainstay.

"We really believe that RSS is key to how people will be using the Internet in the future,"

Orangejack takes us to BlogLines...



"First is a brief attempt to give a tutorial on Bloglines...a tool I highly endorse. If my short tutorial doesn't help, scroll to the bottom and see the one I link to. It's better ;-)

Then I thought about writing a post on RSS and syndication but decided to link to other explanations.

Finally, you can also read what I'm reading through my public showing of my Bloglines feeds."

Getting computers for/to other countries?

[copy of an outgoing email to a new friend needing computers for the '3rd world'. I need the advice of the blogosphere on this. Who are the knowledge workers regarding this topic?]

"Notably, I am not well studied regarding the economics of transporting used computers across borders.

So I'm copying some of my Christian tech friends, to advise me about who are the primary holders of great information about this topic?

Are there reputable mission organizations or global educational ministries that have shown leadership in this area?

Personally, I have been reluctant to send used computers to people oversees... while I myself have a new laptop. Why send my old problems to people who already have their own problems? At the lower shipping weights, and higher usability of inexpensive laptops, for instance, I assume that it would greatly more useful to collect monies to send new laptops to those who can optimize their usefulness... such as churches or cybercafes in these countries. Money, of course, becomes an obstacle; but perhaps reconditioning used computers and selling them locally here on eBay, and then reinvesting the proceeds into laptops for oversees... could make sense.

But as I said, I'm not well studied on the topic. I need all of you to advise me/us.

Let's see what we ALL can learn from each other."


Help anyone?

Bloggers... Why Join Christian Emergency Network?



Christian Emergency Network (CEN) was established after September 11, 2001, by several Mission America Coalition partners (a coalition of 500 leaders and 80+ denominations) to respond effectively in a national crisis, giving the hope of Jesus Christ. CEN now has over 1,000 ministry and media partners. CEN provides focus/coordination/mobilization for...

"Bloggers... Why Team-up with Christian Emergency Network?"
Commentary by Neil Cox, Co-Editor, Blews.net

Calling all Christian bloggers... The goals of the Christian Emergency Network are well-aligned with Great Commission and the Great Commandment. And their mission can be expedited through the Blogs+News=Blews.net Network here, as we seek to lay a pervasive set of communications tracks, national-to-neighborhood... to accelerate the Great Commission and the Great Commandment.

So we urge all of you to also add the CEN logo prominently to your sites. And stay in touch with the EmergencyBlog.com interaction about how to best build-out & equip our increasingly-well-networked folks to be able to handle emergencies the way Jesus would want us to.

Christians discover the power of 'blogosphere'

[Boy, when your message has made the news among North Carolina Baptists... you know you're onto something!]

"It is but one small example of the growing reach of Christian bloggers going online to evangelize, mobilize and occasionally demonize. They marvel at the way blogs give them an opportunity to engage with a lively and diverse audience they could never attract on their own."

Church Webmasters, Stop Working For Free!

[Great post & comments at Boyink Interactive. Hat-tip, OrangeJack.]



Are you a web developer working on your church's website on a volunteer basis?

Stop it.

Immediately.

Walk away.

Or start billing for your time, at rates competitive in the local market.

Why?
