About Me

  • Hello you. I'm a 38-year old MSc student, studying Advanced Computer Science at Sussex University. I'm especially interested in Internet and mobile software, sensors and pervasive computing, user interfaces, and the process of developing great software.

    Before that I spent 11 years running Future Platforms, a software company I co-founded which makes lovely things for mobile phones, and which I sold in 2011.

    I read a lot, write here, and practice Aikido and airsoft. I live in Brighton, a seaside town on the south coast of the UK, with two cats and a clown.

It's all in NNW and it's been doing it for a while as I remember. It's just a simple diff based upon what its DB said you had in the feed before and what's in it now (ok it's a bit more complex than that). The python code that drives it is available here:

Nick's got it right -- it's a NetNewsWire feature. Many thanks go to Aaron Swartz for writing the script and for letting us use it. (Actually, he just about insisted -- and I'm glad he did.)

That's fantastic. It adds a completely new dimension to RSS - congratulations!
