Personalised RSS

Great item from Enterprise RSS about the possible changes we could see in RSS. Essentially there could be multiple private RSS feeds based on the needs to a single individual or group of individuals.

This starts to move personalisation into RSS, if we all remember personalisation was “the thing” on the web in the late 90’s when retailers began using cookies to track what we did and the started to personalise the experience for us around this data. The biggest and the best at this is Amazon. Personalisation is also one of the important points when creating workforce portals.

Now if we overlay personalised RSS with the portal we certainly start get some interesting results. Policy changes can be distributed to people who need them, management reports delivered on demand etc etc.
