I've been playing with Blogtoaster a bit lately. It's a fairly simple - and thus elegant - tool. Basically, you register with the MSN IM entity a set of WebLogs which ping weblogs.com to watch, and it sets a notify to your MSN IM account when they update.
Note that there's also a jabber oriented version of the same service model.
My essential concern - though these are often light bandwidth services to provide, they are still not free for the providers. How this economy sorts out shall be interesting.Posted by esinclai at July 02, 2002 05:39 AM |
