Urgeous Has RSS

Google Reader is shutting down, but like Slate's Matthew Yglesias I don't think this is the end of RSS -- it may be just the opposite, the start of a true RSS renaissance.

So I just added an RSS feed for each user of Urgeous; it responds to http://urgeous.com/rss?uid=[your-user-id-here].

It was really simple to add this functionality with the help of the general API:

  • call the API
  • get back a list of posts in XML
  • transform this XML according to the RSS 2.0 spec.
  • validate it...

Done!
