   RE: [xml-dev] RSS beyond the Blog: 1992 or 1999? - was Re: [xml-dev] hu

I want a notification that tells Rick Karsten that I no longer 
want to be notified that he is on vacation.  I'm getting really 
jealous. :-)

Ok, now I am confused.  Putting away the rathole discussion of 
'real hypertext' (I can think of apps that real hypertext could 
do that the web does badly), you seem to be saying that you 
WOULD use RSS syndication for record level notifications.  So 
you don't see a scale issue with that?

Please elaborate.

Well, I get an e-mail anytime someone accesses my credit files, and I
probably *wouldn't* want to get that via RSS.  However, it is very
appealing to me to have RSS feeds available that tell me whenever anyone
enters a new bug in the bug database against me, or whenever someone
checks in code changes to a tree that  I care about.  These capabilities
serve a real need, and are available today very simply using RSS.  And
in fact I would argue that RSS is superior, because I can modify the
scope of the delivered feed based on URL parameters (very RESTful).
