  • Assigning Credit Where Credit Is Due

    I just wanted to clarify something.  I jumped the gun on publishing the RSS ICBM module.  It was really just an implementation of an idea that was completely Kenneth‘s.  As a matter of fact, I wouldn’t be as excited as I am about geolocation without talking to Kenneth over email and IM, and believe me, I’m really excited.

    It’s this excitement that I think motivated me to get the module out there.  It’s one of those things that I did just before going to bed, and looking back, I totally should have slept on it.

    I violated the trust of someone that I’ve just begun to get to know, and someone that I’ve been thinking of as a friend ever since I started reading his weblog.  I’m sorry about that.  I messed up.

    The spec is out there, it’d be great if it becomes used, though so far very few people seem interested.  I don’t think that it would be right to remove it, I think that violates some kind of weblog ethics, but I will if that’s what is best.

    However, I am going to stop posting about it, and will set it aside until Kenneth and I can talk.

  • MovableType Geolocated RSS 2.0 Template

    Here’s a template for doing a geolocated RSS 2.0 feed with MovableType.  Works for me with MT 2.63.

  • Good URLs Never Change

    Man, now that I’ve linked to the testbed at home, I feel obligated to keep the server up and keep the links permanent.


  • Geolocated RSS 2.0 In Blosxom: Done

    Yep. All it took was modifying a stock rss 0.91 head. It’s working on my blosxom testblog right now. The geolocated RSS 2.0 feed is here. Feel free to validate it. The modified head is here.

    You can download the Geolocated RSS 2.0 flavour pack here.  Change the coordinates to yours and enjoy.

    This flavour pack is tested to work fine with Blosxom 1.2 and is based on the RSS 0.91 flavour that I snagged from Brutalhugs.
