Aggregation Presentation: My So Called Glu'd Life

The old song RipMixLearn still sounds good, but we can now be thinking along with that about how tcontene built from content elsewhere (aggregation via RSS feeds) is viewed. There are different needs and reasons for going Inward or Outward in your aggregating.


Key questions:


* What are some ways of collecting the small pieces into useful packages?

* What are the key considerations in aggregation and representation?

* How do the current available tools stack up?

* What are advantages/pitfalls of relying on this site versus hosting it iin your own web site?


Sniff Some Glu

* Content related to this presentation

* Alan's Glu

* Brian's Glu

* Jay's (Cross) Eclectic Interests


Glu It Yourself

Stephen Downes prefers not relying on the Suprglu site, so he rolled (and shares) his own code to create MyGlu,a similar service you can integrate into your own site.



Blog posts:


* CogDogBlog: Inward / Outward Aggregating (RipMix Fever) And That Fresh Smell of Ajax and RSS Mixers
