News RSS Feeds August 20, 2003

I'm currently running an expirement on the right hand column. Because typepad in it's current state doesn't have an RSS parser, I've been a bit creative. The RSS Feeds are generated in JS by a CFC on my ColdFusion server. That CFC parses RSS feeds and hands them off to the jsFeed method as a query object. It's really pretty cool. I'm going to do a write up later on how it's all done, but for now, we'll just see how this goes.

News Shall We Begin? August 05, 2003

Everyday I dig through various technology blogs looking for Macromedia articles, and as always, I end up losing track of them. I've tried using my personal weblog as a place to talk about and keep track of ColdFusion stuff, but usually fall back to writing more auto-biographical entries. I have an audience that is largely not technical, and I usually avoid geeking out.

A month or two ago I determined that it would be a good idea to maintain a seperate blog focusing primarly on Macromedia technologies, and web development as a whole. Macromedia is a very strong force in web development, and there is always quite a bit of buzz about what they're coming up with, and where they're taking our industry. I think it's fair to say that there is a large audience for the subject as well.

The primary goal of the blog, however, is for the authors of the site to keep track of interesting articles, and talk about the technology. If we can be a good resource for others, then that's just icing on the cake.

With that said, expect to see more entries as we sort out some of the site quirks and layout issues.
