RSS Clouds

Thanks to a post Dave Winner has written in his blog, I know now there is a cloud for RSS, named rssCloud.

Dated back in 2009, Winner explains to us that rssCloud is a three-sided cloud.

  1. The authoring tool. I edit and update a feed. It contains a element that says how a subscriber requests notification of updates.
  2. The cloud. It is notified of an update by the authoring tool, and then in turn notifies all subscribers.
  3. An aggregator. Subscribes to feeds that may or may not be part of a cloud. 

Curious? Read the Implementor's guide to rssCloud, here, and know more about it.
