Brett Slatkin, Robert Scoble and Kevin Marks on 'PubSubHubBub'

Brett_Slatkin_Google_Image_The_Omni_Intelligencer_216If you have been wondering exactly what the significance of ping.fm and RSS Cloud are….and if you have been wondering what in the world ‘Pub Sub Hub bub’ is….you are in luck!

We at The Omni Intelligencer have deep admiration for the wizards who are instrumental in making ‘feed technology’ happen. Anyone working with an internet publication (ranging from simple social networking to publishing a blog or an online news outlet), relies on the ingenuity of our ‘engineer techie’ friends. When an update needs to happen…it magically happens with the click of a mouse.

One of our favorite blogs recently mentioned the following video which is a January 14th, 2010 episode of the popular online podcast, ‘The Gillmore Gang.’ In this episode Brett Slatkin (software engineer at Google on the App Engine team), Robert Scoble (best known for his blog-Scobleizer), and Kevin Marks (VP of web services at BT-formerly British Telecom) discuss some of what is actually happening when the ‘magic’ of RSS is implemented.

Brett Slatkin leads the discussion as he tracks PubSubHubbub's progress as the bridge between RSS and realtime feeds. PubSubHubbub is a server-to-server web-hook-based pubsub (publish/subscribe) protocol as an extension to Atom and RSS. It delivers updated content in real-time from a pinged hub server out to all subscribers that have requested updates. The group explores what some of the more relevant applications are going to be and how it will affect real time news outlets and public updates (as in dot gov information and amber alerts).
