FeedBurner Solved Amy’s Atom 1.0 Problem

Comments (5)

So, earlier tonight, I turned to Amy with a twinkle in my eye and watched as she stared intently at something that looked suspiciously like Typepad on her monitor.  The following conversation ensued:

Brad: “Hey, Atom 1.0 is out.”
Amy: “Adam Who?”
Brad: “Atom 1.0 – the new feed format.”
Amy: “I thought that was RSS.”
Brad: “Yeah, yeah, there’s this other format called Atom that … (long unnecessary technical explanation followed).”
Amy: “Uh huhnnnhh”
Brad: “Stop playing with your blog – this is important.”
Amy: “So – what does it mean – what do I have to do differently?”
Brad: “Heheh – nothing – because you use FeedBurner and they automagically will format your feed for Atom 1.0 if it makes sense.”
Amy: “Brad – you are such a nerd.” (As she continued typing on her computer).

I was a little surprised she didn’t say “What was wrong with the last version of Atom?” – this from a woman who regularly says “Damnit – DOS was good enough – why doesn’t Shift-F7 Y exit Word?”

    i just came across this blog – hopped over from alfed essa. he has a guy called Stephen O’Grady on his blogroll. Stephen is my business partner. Reason i am pinging you – he is based in Denver.

    he had a meeting with newsgator the other day, so it seems there is some little synergy.

    i ragged on him when he moved to colorado, so it only seems fair to admit i was “wrong” and that there is a lot going on there.

    if you would care to check out his blog -

    it might make you interested enough to meet him for a beer sometime or other. anyhow – enough matchmaking. thanks for your time.
