Hi folks,

Greetings from a calm Cairo.

I've deployed a rudimentary link blog tool that produce multiple feeds (http://i.imgur.com/lWbYQ.png - prior art Radio2) at http://hobieu.apphb.com/.

This is the official feed for hobi hobi http://hobieu.apphb.com/f/rss/Hobi-2 - please subscribe :) The html version is here http://hobieu.apphb.com/f/Hobi-2. It also supports Rss.Js out of the box.

You can create your link blog here http://hobieu.apphb.com/ and click on Create menu.

There are still tons of missing features (and UI work) but I am spending a few hours a day to bring it to a fully workable system. I start using the system today for my feeds as well (http://hobieu.apphb.com/f/nomadlife) and I can't wait for it to get better.

Onward,

Dody Gunawinata

You do nice work. I was able to set up a blog very quickly, and it's intuitive.

You're right that it's not feature-heavy yet. :-)

I'm subscribed to your feed.

Thank you for trying it out. My roadmap is this http://scripting.com/stories/2012/07/25/anOpenTwitterlikeEcosystem.html. There are some heavy lifting coming up.

Nice work on this. Good to see more company in this area.
We are on very similar dev paths. I will subscribe and keep myself
looped on your work.
I'd like to do some real-world interop'n between our platforms (and
Daves too of course).
That is the most exciting aspect of this.... totally separate
codebases doing very similar things with RSS and OPML at the core.

ping me whenever.

It is interesting indeed how far one can go with just RSS and OPML. Right now my interop story is still at RSS/OPML level - I still have to do tons of work to connect to Dave's system especially the pub/sub stuff. When I am ready, I will ping you to try to test the interop stuff.
