Hope everyone had a great Labor Day weekend. Here at Memeza, we spent most of the weekend in the garden since the weather was perfect for some labor. Clouds in the sky and less sun make for perfect gardening weather.
Speaking of clouds, earlier today, we decided to enable a new feature on our blog called RSS Cloud. Our RSS feed is available at Memeza RSS Feed. But you’re probably wondering, what is RSS? RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication and it’s a way for people to subscribe to updates on our blog using a client like Google Reader or Bloglines. Right now how most people interact with feeds is by checking that it updated every now and then, usually about once an hour. Can you imagine waiting an hour to get your emails? RSS Cloud is an extra element in our RSS feed that allows you to say “Hey, let me know as soon as you’ve updated the site.”
RSS Cloud is an element that’s always been present but has drawn new attention with the rise of interest in the Real-Time Web. The implications of this big vote of support go beyond reading blogs. According to ReadWriteWeb, this is the kind of traction that new technologies can leverage to gain support in many different applications.
So, with the goal of staying wise, here’s one feature that we’re trying to stay ahead of the curve.
