Simplepie (I love the names of open source software) is a free solution to get the job of syndicating rss feeds done. I use it on my site (Blog headlines).
Welcome to the year 2011! Every day is the start of what could be a new beginning. In the coming year I hope to turn this blog into a better resource for my students in various classes and schools. I want to include a lot more from my lectures about emerging technology, social media, and best practices on the web. I’d like to think of it as on online notebook I can refer to in order to catalogue all the links I use from semester to semester. By being electronic I can keep it up to date and anyone can access it from anywhere they want. Ideally I may never have to print another handout again as it will all be available online in one form or another.
