Blog Things

Just posted the following on my old Livejournal account:
You can add RSS feeds from other sites (like my blog) to your friends list. It's pretty easy. First, you have to know the link to the RSS/Atom file on the blog you are reading. Then, go to http://www.livejournal.com/syn/, scroll down to the bottom, enter the URL in the box and click "add." For my site, you would want to enter http://neatthings.blogspot.com/atom.xml

Kudos to LJ for adding RSS aggregation.
Some kudos to 'em, but as is typical of Livejournal, I had to find this feature through 15 Google searches and About.com. They really need a designer.

On the upshot, it appears Google has taken note of Technorati and PubSub and decided to launch its own Blogsearch, with which to find blogs about specific topics. A quick search on the Freedom Walk turns up the story
of a protestor who was arrested for holding up a sign. It will be interesting to see how Google's search compares to the other blog-oriented search engines, and I congratulate Google on their efforts to provide better search by creating more topic-specific engines. For example, their Katrina resources and specialized search will hopefully be of great help to the victims.

Google is having a meeting on my campus next Tuesday in BRNG 2280 to talk to local coders, designers, and engineers. Count me in.
