LabVIEW Blogs RSS feeds

Recommended Posts

What's http://forums.lavag.org/LabVIEW-Blogs-RSS-Feeds-f90.html for? I've already got RSS feeds to the blogs I'm interested in, so why would I want to get them there and have LAVA push a copy of them through the -ALL OF LAVA- RSS feed as well? I can understand archiving them here (as long as the blog authors are okay with that) for searching purposes, but should new entries be included in the -ALL OF LAVA- RSS feed?

Another issue that hasn't been mentioned yet is copyright. Syndication of content in its entirety seems to be a violation of copyright, if the blogger reserves all rights to their blog's content (as I do). Most blog aggregators (e.g., Technorati) simply quote a brief intro to an article (first fifty words or so) and then put a link to the actual blog article (on the blogger's site). I think that this latter approach is very acceptable, because it helps promote a blogger's site. Syndication of the entire blog article does not seem right, to me.

You can control the syndication on your end and only insert the first sentence or so in the feed (teaser text). This is what NI does on their news feed. Also, to ensuring that appropriate credit is given, include a copyright reference in the final line of the Item Description field of your RSS feed. You can also integrate links back to the source website in the Item description field.

Finaly, if you want me to remove your blog from the forum, just send me a PM. I've removed the blogs forum from the - All of LAVA- RSS feed. I've kept the NI RSS feed in there however.

I second Jim in this question.

Since you are using Feedburner, I'm sure you can find the answer there.
