yeah whats strange is that googs is adopting ATOM and not RSS2.0 as their feed std.. whereas MSFTare going the other way..

Is this fork good for Google and what could be the advantage.. what we are seeing here is only the UI on reader. ..beanth the hood paradigm is even more important I think..

I am just being a nosy , hyper type of thinker ??

Google were always on the Atom side. IIRC there was a time when the free Blogger.com didn't even allow you to publish RSS, but only Atom (and in the paid version, you had the choice between either one, but not both). Personally I think what happened is that people tried to solve the problem that was the RSS mess by adding yet another format to that mess... which is not helping anyone.

By the way, XHTML2 will support a sort of "inline" RSS that you can add to your normal tags. Like this:

<h role="rss:title">Hello World</h>

Maybe that would've been the place to go from the start – why create RSS when you can have presentation-free strict HTML?

Philipp, Blogger *still* only publishes Atom feeds and suggests that you use FeedBurner if you want RSS!

Hi,

   I am using Wordpress.com blog, and is there any way I can use the features mentioned here? Or is it a case of right question in the wrong forum?

Regards,
Proto.

Proto, you can use the embedding feature with any blog. For example, my blog is on Movable Type and I have a linkblog in the sidebar that is in fact an embedded Google Reader label:

persistent.info/

Feel free to discuss more about this in the Google Reader group:

Mihai, thanks so much for your reply. But please note that I was asking about wordpress.COM and not .ORG. Anyway, I will trouble you in the GR group. :)

Kind of underwhelming! But then again, I suppose any real RSS reader supports any kind of feed format anyway...

Google building social features? Can't be! Surely all personal relationships can be solved algorithmically?

FYI – Google are sharing their "Official Google Blogs" here:

This is linked to on the right from the Official Google Blog under "Recent posts from more Google blogs":

Strange, that shared Google Reader URL is showing me very old posts... from March.

Seems fine for me, except for the odd Google Official Blog error.

These are the most recent posts I'm getting:

1. Are you search-centric? (Official Google Enterprise Blog – Apr 9, 2006)
2. (title unknown) (Official Google Blog)
3. Doing what they love, the rest follows (Official Google Blog)
^ This one is from March, although the feed says Apr 8, 2006. (I made a mistake with this in another comment on this forum.)
4. Labels: Better, stronger, faster (Official Google Reader Blog – Apr 7, 2006)
5. Google Maps API Version 2 (Google Code Blog – Apr 4, 2006)
6. On Spam Removals (Blogger Buzz – Apr 7, 2006)
7. Meet Ivan the optimiser – but please, no paparazzi (Inside AdSense – Apr 7, 2006)
8. Google Picks (Official Google Video Blog – Apr 7, 2006)

etc.

Now I see that I also have April posts showing. Why aren't they sorted reverse-chronologically though, newest on top? The first 4 I'm getting are:
1. Going international, March 22
2. First Robots, March 23
3. Data Tip, March 16
4. System Maintenance, March 23
