Om & Niall PodSessions #6: RSS More Than Text


How quickly the weeks fly! The latest edition of Om & Niall PodSessions is up for your listening pleasure. In this 21-minute 9.9 MB file we talk about who RSS is being used to deliver rich media on devices like TiVo, and its possible impact on connected homes, broadband infrastructure and the need for speed. RSS, is slowly becoming invisible to an end user, but is becoming critical part of a new disaggregated and distributed digital media world.

In this edition we talk about TiVo, MythTV, Windows Media Center, Xbox 360. We also look at the importance of Feed aggregators like FeedDemon, NewsGator, and cool apps like Shrook. We also discuss the XML focus of companies like Cisco which is all set to announce its service oriented network architecture tomorrow at its analysts day.
