    There’s a lot of conversation as well as confusion today about Microsoft’s announcement of its new version of Windows, especially in that it’s branding it as Windows 10, even though the last version of Windows was 8 (or 8.1, if one wanted to get technical, which we welcome). The thing is, [...]

    The White House issued a statement of support for “the aspirations of the Hong Kong people” on Tuesday, in response to a petition urging the U.S. government to put pressure on the Chinese government. The Obama Administration’s comments reflect a gradual toughening of its response to Beijing, as the Chinese Communist Party refuses to heed Hong Kong protesters’ loudening call for free and fair elections amid swelling demonstrations in the financial powerhouse. “The United States supports universal suffrage in Hong Kong in accordance with the Basic Law,” the…

    One of the greatest threats to, and darkest clouds on the horizon of, China’s future is the prospect of ruinously wasteful and dangerous arms race (already under way for almost two decades) with the United States. I see no logic, necessity, or benefit for the American people in the policies and plans Work elaborates. Quite the opposite. It is “lose-lose.”

    A number of art works belonging to Imelda Marcos, wife of late Philippine dictator Ferdinand Marcos, have been seized by authorities, who claim they were bought with embezzled state funds. Works by Picasso and Gauguin are believed to be among the pieces still in the former First Lady’s possession, reports the BBC, as is Michelangelo’s Madonna and Child. Authorities are keen to trace the other artworks. The 85-year-old Marcos, who was elected to the Philippine congress in 2010, has repeatedly denied her estimated $10 billion fortune was acquired illicitly. Ferdinand Marcos ruled…

    Panama has opened a biodiversity museum designed by renowned architect Frank Gehry, his first project in Latin America. The Biomuseo — a hodgepodge of bright-colored metal canopies swopping over the eight galleries inside — presents a tour of the Central American nation’s rich, diverse ecosystems, the BBC reports. The building itself “was designed to tell the story of how the isthmus of Panama rose from the sea, uniting two continents, separating a vast ocean in two, and changing the planet’s biodiversity forever,” the museum’s website says.

  • Feeds, Clicks and DNS Problems

    If you or your subscribers have been frustrated trying to get to a FeedBlitz feed (or click through to a link in a FeedBlitz feed) in the last 24 hours or so, the reason is because some third party DNS servers have been returning the wrong results for feeds.feedblitz.com. The net effect is that although FeedBlitz is up and your feeds are being served, some subscribers are being sent to the wrong servers, and getting errors as a result. Update: We’ve routed traffic from the “wrong” server to one of the “right” ones, so even folks affected by this should now get…
  • Today I Learned: How to Enable Flash Developers

    Not having Flash development experience in-house, we were puzzled recently when we received a support request from a Flash guy wondering why a file we’d never heard of (crossdomain.xml) was giving a 404 file not found error when he requested it. Because it wasn’t there, obviously. Thankfully, the developer in question was kind enough to throw us a link about why that file was needed for Flash, and a few minutes later we had everything we needed to know. Thanks, Chad! So if you’re a Flash developer, crossdomain.xml is now available on our servers to permit you to use…
  • New: RSS Image Enclosures Now Visible

    13 Aug 2014 | 6:58 am
    A funny (peculiar, not haha) thing about major media site RSS feeds is that not only are the feeds often little more than a plain text (and so kinda boring) sentence, but also that their RSS feeds tend to include thumbnail images as enclosures. Enclosures are the part of a feed typically used for podcast media files, and the problem with stashing an image as an enclosure is that most people won’t see it, since the picture isn’t part of the main content. As a result, the feed and downstream feed usage (e.g. email subscriptions) are much less engaging for us carbon based life…
  • The FeedBlitz API: Workflow for Building a Plugin

    The goal of this example is to show you what API calls to make so you can programmatically add a subscriber’s email (and other information) to a list at FeedBlitz. Let’s assume you’re developing a plugin for WordPress; any WP plugin developer should be able to integrate with FeedBlitz! The example below isn’t limited to plugins, of course; it can work with any web site, product or service you can extend programmatically.  You use simple Web requests, so it’s pretty easy for a web developer to do.

    The REST API is an XML-based API. It is, like FeedBlitz itself, complex and at times may be challenging to use. For simple use cases, such as integrating a FeedBlitz subscription mechanism into your site or service, we recommend using one of the APIs I’ve already covered this week, or a plugin / widget that has already done the work for you. If you’re building such a plugin, widget or tool, then depending on your use cases you may need to delve into the REST API in some depth.
