"It strikes me that with namespace support for RSS, an element might be added that would enable aggregators to redirect in such cases. [...] I’ve used a client-side redirect (HTTP-EQUIV="refresh") for the home page, but haven’t figured out how to do the same for the RSS channel. If you see a way, please clue me in. Otherwise, if you want to keep subscribing to my feed, you’ll have to switch your aggregator to the new link."
When I switched to Blogger Pro I feared I might lose some people who read me exclusively through RSS. Well, in a weird circular chain of events, Jon Udell was victim of my relocation, as well as looking for a solution to RSS continuity for himself. I should probably have published the new URL in a lost post the old RSS feed before I changed providers (from Voidstar to Blogger Pro.) Since Blogspot was down for maintenance yesterday, my old RSS link broke Jon’s feedroll.
I'm CEO of an online trade publishing firm in the marketing and defense verticals. We try to make news and data digestible and useful in an environment that is more noisy each day. This personal blog mixes my thoughts and interests on politics, business, software, and more, based on my business and personal experiences. Over the years I have posted items that turned out spectacularly wrong, and a few posts that stood the test of times better. Personal views only.
