Step by step..
- SlashDot.Org supports a simple syndication format they call ultramode.
- We wrote software that reads this format, brings the content into a Frontier guest database and renders it thru a simple script, resulting in SlashDot.UserLand.Com.
- We get in the loop with Netscape's RSS format, so we're in position to syndicate any content that flows thru Netscape's service, resulting in My.UserLand.Com.
- This morning I wrote a script that renders the SlashDot content as RSS, much as we do for Scripting News. Here's the RSS request.
- I submitted this link to My.UserLand.Com, resulting in something that's cool beyond belief. SlashDot.Org is now a my.userland.com channel. Ain't that something?
I love the Internet!
