“…SSE could be used to share your work calendar with your spouse. If your calendar were published to an SSE feed, changes to your work calendar could be replicated to your spouse’s calendar, and vice versa.”
So it is different than the RSS notification, as it replicates content, that’s pretty powerful stuff.
So you no longer have to share the same calendar, or subscribe to an RSS feed to get the latest updates from someone else’s calendar entries…you can both have your own calendar, and when you make an edit to your’s it will reflect in someone’s else’s calendar (provided they subscribe to your SSE feed)…so in essence it is decentralised collaboration, and it doesn’t matter what application you use, as long as it accepts SSE feeds.
What if you don’t want a particular entry to appear on someone else’s calendar who subscribes to the SSE feed of your calendar, can you disable it for the moment…or can the recipient chooses to accept the entry or not?
Besides calendars, SSE can be used for anything such as blogrolls, contacts, lists, etc…SSE can also extend OPML, so this may be a way of making OPML reading lists dynamic.
We all know a blog can offer an RSS feed, but can your blog subscribe to an extended RSS feed (SSE feed) of another blog?
If you have two blogs can a post you make in one blog, replicate in the other blog (provided it subscribes to the SSE feed)…as mentioned before what if you don’t want every post replicated, only posts of your choosing.
This is different than your blog subscribing to an RSS feed that displays content in the sidebar, this is allowing contents from another feed to be replicated or published in your main body along with your content
…what about categories, author stamp, archives, linking back to the original post.
I know you can publish to multiple blogs in one go when using offline blogging clients, but this is a bit different as the second blog may not be your blog.
If you have a collective of blogs you can splice all their feeds and place it in a master blog with content from all their feeds appearing in the one blog.
What if this master blog doesn’t want to include every post from all these blogs, it may only want posts about a certain topic, or it may just not want personal posts.
In this case every blog in the collective could make a category in their blog called eg. “master blog” (hopefully their blog allows to file posts in multiple categories, as I’m sure they’d like to apply other categories as well to the same post), and you could splice one category feed from each blog instead of the main feeds, this way the master blogs will only have the selected content from all these blogs.
Can SSE add any new value to this scenario?
The key word with SSE is replicate, I guess this is different to re-syndicate, as the recipient can send stuff back down the same channel, so the other keyword is bi-directional.
I wonder what other things people can find to do with SSE, shouldn’t take long with some quick socialising in the blogosphere…imagine the blogosphere was heavily used for AIDS or CANCER research, rather than journals, I think a discovery would be round the corner in no time (all these great minds sharing their thoughts, with immediate feedback and discussion)…this is surely a way to advance science in a more quicker and collaborative way, especially in an inter-disciplinary way…bit off topic…although, there are no rules with blogging, nothing wrong with stream of consciousness.
Concise definition of SSE
“1. to use RSS as the basis for item sharing – that is, the bi-directional, asynchronous replication of new and changed items amongst two or more cross-subscribed feeds.
2. to use OPML as the basis for outline sharing – that is, the bi-directional, asynchronous replication of outlines, such as RSS aggregators subscription lists - from Microsoft”
I think ICE is just a more business oriented version of RSS?
