Microsoft & RSS: Details at Gnomedex 5.0

June 10, 2005


I have been anxiously awaiting Microsoft’s product announcements regarding RSS and feed aggregators. Three months ago, I talked with Robert Scoble. He gave me some obscure hints about efforts underway – but nothing specific. Now I’m starting to see the wink-wink, nod-nod hints starting to increase. While en route to Copenhagen (for this weeks Reboot conference), Robert held one of his Geek dinners in Texas. At that meeting, he resumed his hints about a new RSS aggregator from Microsoft. Chris Prakoso added even more fuel to this fire in his post today. Chris reports that Microsoft will be announcing something as early as Gnomedex 5.0 (June 23-25).

BTW, the timing makes perfect sense. Microsoft (and Yahoo!) are the chief sponsors for Gnomedex 5.0. Gnomedex will be held In the Seattle area. And both Dave Winer and Adam Curry will be featured guests/presenters. You’ve got to believe that Microsoft will want to make a big splash with such notable techno-celebrities in attendance. Who knows? We may see RSS everywhere as well as discrete podcasting/podcatching client programs.

I can’t wait to see the announcements. 🙂


[6/12 Note: I just heard from Chris Prakoso. I misattributed his blog post to Hugh MacLeod. Oops. Sorry for the mistake.]
