Mark Pilgrim Castrates his RSS Feeds — Film at Eleven



Mark Pilgrim:

Update 2: I have removed the namespaced elements from all of my RSS feeds. Since there is no way in RSS 2.0 (as-is) to specify both the excerpt and the full text of a post, the feeds now only contain excerpts. Also, I switched from using link to using guid for item permalinks, as discussed recently.

I look forward to publishing a feed in the new format (once the physical model has been nailed down) that will be as complex and feature-rich as my needlessly-complicated-RSS feeds used to be.

Aparently in reaction to praise from Dave Winer, Mark has rendered his RSS feeds fairly useless to most people.  See Scott Johnson’s blog for details.
