O'Reilly Network: The New Bloglines Web Services
by Marc Hedlund 9/28/04
By now I'm sure everyone's heard that Bloglines will be offering "web services APIs". Does everyone know what that means? I thought not. In the linked article the author describes why this is important and gives some ideas for developers. It just might be the answer to the headaches in network traffic caused by over eager aggregators. Prediction: some company, maybe Bloglines, will offer a corporate feed server that will offer employees a menu of diverse (maybe selected?) feeds grabbed once an hour and delivered on demand. Corporate librarians could select feeds with input from staff. Users can choose which to add to their browser.
