Okay folks, I think I officially just crossed that line over into the magical and mystical “RSS Junkie” land. Some of you may have seen the new architecture journal put out by Microsoft EMEA Architects. Well, I downloaded the journal and read it and found it quite interesting. However, I went back to the site to find a way to stay updated and what do I find? Nothing! Absolutely nothing! How great would it be if the journal site had an RSS feed? I really don't want to keep on going back to the site just to see if a new issue is out. Even a “newsletter” would be better than nothing. Sometimes I feel that even with how far we have come with technology, I could be kept better up-to-date by using smoke signals.

It would be nice if more people took Scoble's advice (5th post from the top) more seriously. I don't want to have to open up a browser and surf to a website everytime I want to know if there is a new content! Fine, call me lazy (I already know that I am)! Of course I could do something like Rory, and build my own RSS feed for the journal site but I simply don't have the time to fix it when it breaks (which it would undoubtedly due at some point).

Well, in the meantime, I am just going to continue crying out loud until someone comes along and feeds me. Maybe if I'm good, they'll burp me too :~).

If you live near Columbus, OH or Austin, TX, I will be presenting RSS at the user groups in Feb/Mar.

Bummer, I'm not that near :~(. Portland, Oregon is pretty far a way. Sounds like a great subject though, would have been nice to catch it and finally meet you :~).
