ReBlg not to be confused with reBlog (one-click re-posting [with an automated reference - to avoid copyright issues] from you RSS reader to your blog), is a new tool in development that claims to be a universal Blog This! button.
From their post:
“Tired of being forced to use only the latest tool or utility to take advantage of a new standard – wish you could use ANY tool or utility instead?” - where’s a routing service to enable me to send posts to whatever tool I chose?….
“So how would a standard to enable a universal “Blog This” button to work? Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to click on a ‘ReBlg’ button and decide which tool I want to send that post to – irregardless of who produces that tool? Wouldn’t it be nice that this process NOT lose the structure of the microformat or micro-content I’m clicking on – thereby keeping in tact the structure of that post?”
“Wouldn’t it be nice to support a system of meshing together various kinds of tools, utilities or solutions – from a wide range of vendor’s – without forcing end-users to take sides or lock them into one tool vendors camp or product?”
“ReBlg.com would enable end-users to register their favorite tool of choice so that wherever they traveled on the web, by simply clicking on the ‘ReBlg’ button – they could easily send that post to their favorite tool. If the end-user doesn’t want to rely upon our web service, then they can simply download a MIME handler to do that routing for them.”
This is what I’ve been looking around for, I wonder if it would work like the print button, or discuss button on the IE browser
…where exactly does this button sit, maybe I should ask the people at Reblg.
I wonder how it would handle frames, that is, if you want to send an entry from your RSS reader to somewhere…when you hit the button how will it know which entry from the many in your RSS reader you want to send.
(that’s why I find right-click action very useful)
