Came across a very interesting (and as always, a very insightful Jon Udell) conversation about syndication-oriented architecture. Not, to deemphasize the benefits of the “information flow within the enterprise” via syndication; but, its really an amazing observation that “The line us blurring between personal information management and publishing“; and recent developments in the syndication space might just be the right technology to see that happen.
“For search engine indexing, we assume that the search engine indexer is acting just like the first offline client example above. For the most part, all the search engine will be interested in are significant changes to content and the tombstones so that deleted content can be removed from the index.”
This might really change the way web sites open up their content for search and make content more relevant and accurate, more specifically, tying it back to information flow in the enterprise, it will make enterprise search that more efficient. Good stuff!
Feedsync makes rss/atom syndication two way and I’d like to call this Active Syndication!
