Syndicated Subscription Crapola

I’m going to put my 2 cent foot in my mouth, and state that there is no need for a publisher’s clearing house to manage my many subscriptions. This problem is one easily solved by the Spontaneous Integration.

  1. A thing exposes a URI.
  2. A thing appends that URI to a list.
  3. A thing reads the list, and GETs the URI.

Whoop-de-doo.

So the Big Problem being over-engineered here is “where is the list?” So, let’s add another step.

  1. A thing exposes a URI.
  2. A thing appends that URI to a list.
  3. A thing tells another thing where to find the list.
  4. A thing reads the list, and GETs the URI.

Now, having said that it is easily solved, you expect me to indicate how it was solved, where, and by whom. Well, for me, it looks to be LiveLines. Your solution may be different — but that’s the way the Spontaneous Integration works.
