While trying to follow through on New Years resolution # 3, I spent a good part of last night and today taking a good close look at the various syndication feeds that various local bloggers are using on their sites. I am truly amazed at how different the “standard” files generated from the different blog applications out there. It’s also been very interesting to compare the different formats that these packages are supposed to generate. I have never seen so many different time formats in my life! Not to mention that fact of how many people aren’t really sure which time zone they should be in.
I am however having a great time and making some good progress on a project that I’ve been thinking about for quite some time and now seem to be finally getting some of those thoughts turned into lines of code. I’m not quite ready to spill the beans yet. In some ways it’s more of an experiment than a project, but I hope to be showing it off for some limited feedback in the next couple weeks and opening it up further in advance of the 2005 Triangle Bloggers Conference happening in Chapel Hill on February 12, 2005.
