What is it?
“RSSCloud is an element that’s always been present in the RSS 2.0 spec but has drawn new attention with the rise of interest in the Real-Time Web.”What this will do is make blog updates available to compatible feed readers as soon as the 'Publish' button is pressed.
- Read and Write Web
It takes about an hour for a current feed reader to pick up new blog posts, which means RSSCloud will enable 'real-time blogging'. You'll be able to see new blog updates as they're published, rather than every 60 minutes.
As soon as I can, I'll be implementing this technology into www.evebloggers.com so that new posts from all the Eve bloggers will be displayed in real time, instead of every hour.
If you use Twitter or Facebook, you already see how real-time updates looks in their display of status updates.
Is anyone looking forward to this, or just me? :)
