CNN Does RSS · Via <a href='http://www.paulbeard.org/wordpress/index.php?p=2430'>Paul Beard</a>, I hear that CNN has launched some RSS feeds. They seem to work. <i>[Update: A nice person at CNN (whom I’d name except for he says “I have enough to do without risking becoming the Internet face of CNN”) writes me to say the full list of RSS feeds is now available <a href='http://www.cnn.com/services/rss/'>here</a>.]</i>
 
A Wider Hosepipe · For those of us who just can’t be up-to-the-minute enough on what the Net’s saying, a new goodie: Technorati’s “keyword watchlists”. Get the <a href='http://www.sifry.com/alerts/archives/000267.html'>details</a> from Dave Sifry. I tried it, it seems to work.
 
XTech, Time to Pitch In · This is the <a href='http://www.xtech-conference.org'>big European summer XML event</a>; the <a href='http://www.xtech-conference.org/2005/call.asp'>call for papers</a> is closing in a couple days. Edd Dumbill, the chair, tells me that the submissions are excellent on the server side but there’s room on the <a href='http://usefulinc.com/edd/blog/contents/2004/12/20-browsers/read'>client side</a>, so all you XULoids and .NET-hacks and SVGers and XFormlings, get with it. Lauren and I are going to try to go (haven’t been to Amsterdam in ages); I’m particularly interested by the <a href='http://usefulinc.com/edd/blog/contents/2005/01/05-xtech-open-data/read'>Open Data track</a>, which sounds like something new in the world.
