A couple of reminders recently to provide readers with what they really want. RSS Feeds that contain the full post. It’s now done – isn’t choice wonderful? You can choose. If you desire a full post rather than the excerpt, please change your subscription to:
Full Posts (XML) http://www.henshall.com/blog/index2.rdf
Why is it that MT’s default setting is excerpts?
Makes me think about my own newreader. I wish I could toggle between full and excerpts. Even better scan quickly on excepts and then toggle to full posts. Early on I tried AmphetaDesk and currently just use the Radio one. Except I get posts that blow its formating from time to time. Is there a newreader that can improve my experience? Is there one I can install on my server? That is also easy to do?How does a group go collective newsreading? A my, yours, ours subscription file? Are there tools mapping subscriptions in this format?
Of course, I updated my subscription list right away. I’ve been tracking Stuart’s excellent observations on the world of knowledge work for a while now. With full feeds it will be that much easier.
Stuart does raise some important points about some needed evolution in RSS feed readers. One tool that I have added to the mix that helps in my “Radio” environment is Mikel Maron’s MyRadio tool. It lets me do some of the things Stuart asks for.
