I'm giving a talk on the implementation of BottomFeeder at StS 2004 - there's still time to register, btw! Anyway, saying I'll talk about the implementation is a bit broad - what am I going to discuss?
I've now given a variation on this talk three times - to two STUG meetings, and at ot2004. The STUG talks were more technically oriented, but I got a lot of good feedback at ot2004 about it. So before I really get into implementation, I'll (briefly) do two things:
- Explain what a blog is - it's easy to assume that "everyone" knows what a blog is. It's still something of an insular world though, so I'll provide a brief overview
- What's an Aggregator? Again, as with blogs, not everyone knows what one is. I'll again give a brief overview of what an aggregator is.
Then I'll talk about how I stumbled into this field, followed by some of the implementation details of BottomFeeder. I've uploaded the slide deck here. I've made a few changes since I sent in the presentation for the StS CD, so it might be worth downloading. I'm speaking bright and early - 8:30 am on May 5th. See you there!
