Content Discovery: RSS and the Power of Dynamic OPML Subscriptions

Content Discovery: RSS and the Power of Dynamic OPML Subscriptions | Content Curation World | Scoop.it
Robin Good's insight:



If you need to monitor and track content updates from many different web sources, while being able to manage and easily update such sets of content sources, you may want to look into dynamic OPML reading lists.


In this in-depth article, Marjolein Hoekstra explores, reports and illustrates the power of OPML files and their abilities when paired with specific tools. 


Specifically (though not in this same exact order):


  • What are OPML reading lists
  • OPML examples on the web
  • OPML history and Dave Winer
  • FeedShare OPML exchange site
  • Limitations of OPML reading lists
  • InoReader and dynamic OPML reading lists
  • How to create RSS feeds from your own reading lists
  • How to generate OPML reading lists from your RSS reader
  • OPML tools and resources
  • Create a Google custom search engine with an OPML file



The article is a treasure trove of useful information especially for any journalist or researcher in need to continuously and update its news discovery and monitoring abilities. 


N.B.: Organization of the content sections in this article is a bit rough, but if you are not in a rush and dig through it, you can easily make sense of it all-


Informative. Insightful. 8/10

Curate Great Resources and Articles Into an eBook with Readlists | Content Curation World | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Readlists is a simple web app which allows you to easily create curated lists of web resources, articles and links and bundle them to a downloadable eBook.

"A Readlist is a group of web pages—articles, recipes, course materials, anything—bundled into an e-book you can send to your Kindle, iPad, or iPhone."


To create a "Readlist" you simply click on the Create a Readlist button and add one url at a time. The system gently grabs metadata info like title and author and elegatly lays it out in an ebook formatted reading index ready to be published.


The service is free to use.
