I’m a regular listener of the NY Times TechTalk podcast. It’s well done and usually interesting. The last few weeks they’ve had a segment on the iPhone, and last week reviewed some of the websites that work especially well on the device.
I was hoping they’d mention the nytimesriver site, after all, they write for the Times, and presumably read the Times, and since they all have iPhones, well I hoped they’d overlook any potential conflicts and tell their listeners who very likely read the Times too, and would want to on their mobile devices, including of course the iPhone. Alas, no mention.
I keep wondering how this great site can remain such a secret for so long. News.com gave it tons of flow, but that’s dropping off now. I’ll keep thinking of ways of spreading the word.
I’ve started to work on the final pass of the OPML 2.0 spec, in preparation for freezing it. The last changes were made on 3/1/06, well over a year ago. There haven’t been comments in months. People have been quietly deploying OPML 2.0, even though there’s a clear Do Not Deploy caveat at the top of the document.
Today I made a change to the explanation of the new-in-2 <ownerId> element. In the previous version it said the address had to point to a page with a form that allowed the reader to communicate with the author. It no longer says it must be a form. Further, in the previous version it didn’t say that it must be unique to the author. Now it does.
