Mr. RSS Goes to Washington
Have you seen the just-relaunched www.whitehouse.gov? Take a moment and look:
From the tone of the welcome message from the White House’s Director of New Media, this blog is intended to be relatively informal. It’s clearly a “new media” site — aimed at an entirely more connected audience than the past version.
If you look closely at the image, you’ll see a very prominent weblog — just below the picture, on the left. Not just a blog, but an RSS-enabled blog. And — this makes my little RSS heart go pitter-pat — the HTML source of the blog post shows that there is not just one RSS feed, but there are six. Here they are:
- Agenda Articles Feed
- Press Office Feed
- OMB News Article Feed
- Blog Feed
- Photo Gallery Feed
- Video Feed
Now that’s a lot of RSS! (Although at the moment, the agenda, press, and video feeds appear to be empty.) And in case you want a single feed, here’s the RSS4Lib Whitehouse.gov all-in-one feed, via Yahoo! Pipes.
