RSS

As wikipedia says:

 

RSS is a family of Web feed formats used to publish frequently updated works—such as blog entries, news headlines, audio, and video—in a standardized format. An RSS document (which is called a “feed”, “web feed” or “channel”) includes full or summarized text, plus metadata such as publishing dates and authorship. Web feeds benefit publishers by letting them syndicate content automatically. They benefit readers who want to subscribe to timely updates from favored websites or to aggregate feeds from many sites into one place. RSS feeds can be read using software called an “RSS reader”, “feed reader”, or “aggregator”, which can be web-based or desktop-based. A standardized XML file format allows the information to be published once and viewed by many different programs. The user subscribes to a feed by entering the feed’s URI (often referred to informally as a “URL”, although technically, those two terms are not exactly synonymous) into the reader or by clicking an RSS icon in a browser that initiates the subscription process. The RSS reader checks the user’s subscribed feeds regularly for new work, downloads any updates that it finds, and provides a user interface to monitor and read the feeds.

RSS formats are specified using XML, a generic specification for the creation of data formats. Although RSS formats have evolved since March 1999, the RSS icon first gained widespread use between 2005 and 2006″

Oralidad

“Lo que será denominado competencia comunicativa casi nunca ha dejado de estar referida al lenguaje oral y a su versión escrita. Por ellos se ha relacionado con las capacidades semánticas y sintácticas del lenguaje verbal pero sobre todo, a aquellas que se traslucía en la escritura. En este sentido lo que ha sido un proceso derivado de una simplificación metodológica se ha convertido en una sido más científico. Una sido más que, en cierta manera, ha fundado la práctica de la lingüística y de análisis del discurso. De esta manera se ha considerado, que el centro del lenguaje verbal – pero muchas veces del lenguaje, es la oralidad escrita.”

HTML, XML

“HTML are the initials for HyperText Markup Language. It provides a means to describe the structure of text-based information in a document — by denoting certain text as links, headings, paragraphs, lists, and so on — and to supplement that text with interactive forms, embedded images, and other objects. HTML is written in the form of tags, surrounded by angle brackets. HTML can also describe, to some degree, the appearance and semantics of a document, and can include embedded scripting language code (such as JavaScript) which can affect the behaviour of Web browsers and other HTML processors.
XML are the initials for Extensible Markup Language. It is a general-purpose specification for creating custom markup languagesIt is classified as an extensible language, because it allows the user to define the mark-up elements. XML’s purpose is to aid information systems in sharing structured data, especially via the Internet to encode documents, and to serialize data; in the last context, it compares with text-based serialization languages such as JSON and YAML.
XML began as a simplified subset of the Standard Generalized Markup Language (SGML), meant to be readable by people via semantic constraints; application languages can be implemented in XML. These include XHTML, RSS, MathML, GraphML, Scalable Vector Graphics, MusicXML, and others. Moreover, XML is sometimes used as the specification language for such application languages.
XML is recommended by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). It is a fee-free open standard. The recommendation specifies lexical grammar and parsing requirements.”

WEB 2.0

The term “Web 2.0” describes the changing trends in the use of World Wide Web technology and web design that aim to enhance creativity, communications, secure information sharing, collaboration and functionality of the web. Web 2.0 concepts have led to the development and evolution of web culture communities and hosted services, such as social-networking sites, video sharing sites, wikis, blogs, and folksonomies. The term became notable after the first O’Reilly Media Web 2.0 conference in 2004. Although the term suggests a new version of the World Wide Web, it does not refer to an update to any technical specifications, but rather to changes in the ways software developers and end-users utilize the Web. According to Tim O’Reilly:

Web 2.0 is the business revolution in the computer industry caused by the move to the Internet as a platform, and an attempt to understand the rules for success on that new platform

Tim Berners-Lee, inventor of the World Wide Web, has questioned whether one can use the term in any meaningful way, since many of the technology components of Web 2.0 have existed since the early days of the Web.

Web 2.0 encapsulates the idea of the proliferation of interconnectivity and interactivity of web-delivered content. Tim O’Reilly regards Web 2.0 as the way that business embraces the strengths of the web and uses it as a platform. O’Reilly considers that Eric Schmidt‘s abridged slogan, don’t fight the Internet, encompasses the essence of Web 2.0 — building applications and services around the unique features of the Internet, as opposed to expecting the Internet to suit as a platform (effectively “fighting the Internet”).

In the opening talk of the first Web 2.0 conference, O’Reilly and John Battelle summarized what they saw as the themes of Web 2.0. They argued that the web had become a platform, with software above the level of a single device, leveraging the power of the “Long Tail”, and with data as a driving force. According to O’Reilly and Battelle, an architecture of participation where users can contribute website content creates network effects. Web 2.0 technologies tend to foster innovation in the assembly of systems and sites composed by pulling together features from distributed, independent developers. (This could be seen as a kind of “open source” or possible “Agile” development process, consistent with an end to the traditional software adoption cycle, typified by the so-called “perpetual beta“.)

Kevin Kelly

Kevin Kelly was born in Pennsylvannia in 1952 and he graduates in New Jersey in 1970. When he was 27 Kevin Kelly was a freelance photo journalist, and got locked out of his hostel in Jerusalem due to being late for a curfew. He slept on the supposed spot where Jesus was crucified, and in the morning had a religious experience. He decided to live as if he only had six months left to live. He went and lived peacefully with his parents, anonymously gave away his money, visited his friends, and came back home to “die” on the night of Halloween.

 

In 1981, Kelly founded Walking Journal. He is a former editor of Whole Earth review (see also Coevolution Quartely), Signal, and some of the later editions of the Whole Earth Cataloge. With Whole Earth’s founder, Stewart Brand, Kelly helped found the WELL, a highly regarded online community. He has been a director of the Point Foundation, which sponsored the first Hackers Conference in 1984 (before the word “hacker” had its current common, negative connotation).

In 1994, Wired Magazine, for which Kelly was executive director, won the National Magazine Award for General Excellence. Kelly is now editor at large for the magazine. Partially due to his reputation as Wired’s editor, he is noted as a participant and observer of “cyberculture“.

Kelly’s writing has appeared in many other national and international publications such as The New York Times, The Economist, Time, Harper’s Magazine, Science, Veneer, GQ, and Esquire. His photographs have appeared in Life and other American national magazines.

Kelly’s most notable book-length publication, Out of control: The new biology of machines, social systems and the economic world  (1994), presents a view on the mechanisms of complex organization. The central theme of the book is that several fields of contemporary science and philosophy point in the same direction: intelligence is not organized in a centralized structure but much more like a bee-hive of small simple components. Kelly applies this view to bureaucratic organisations, intelligent computers, and to the human brain.

Among Kelly’s personal involvements is a campaign to make a full inventory of all living species on earth, an effort also known as the Linnaean enterprise. The goal is to make an attempt at an “all species” web-based catalog in one generation (25 years).

Kelly lives in Pacifica, California, a small coastal town just south of San Francisco. He is a devout Christian. He is married and has three children.

Hypertext

Hypertext most often refers to text on a computer that will lead the user to other, related information on demand. Hypertext is a relative innovation to user interfaces, which comes over some of the limitations of the traditional written texts. Rather than remaining static like traditional text, hypertext makes possible a dynamic organization of information through links and connections (called hyperlinks). Hypertext can be designed to perform various tasks; for instance when a user “clicks” on it a bubble with a word definition may appear, a web page on a related subject may load, a video clip may run, or an application may open.

The prefix hyper signifies the overcoming of the old linear constraints of written text. The term “hypertext” is often used where the term hypermedia might seem appropriate. In 1992 Ted Nelson – who coined both terms in 1965 – wrote:

“By now the word “hypertext” has become generally accepted for branching and responding text, but the corresponding word “hypermedia,” meaning complexes of branching and responding graphics, movies and sound – as well as text – is much less used. Instead they use the strange term “interactive multimedia” – four syllables longer, and not expressing the idea that it extends hypertext. – Nelson, Literary Machines 1992.”

Hypertext documents can either be static (prepared and stored in advance) or dynamic (continually changing in response to user input). Static hypertext can be used to cross-reference collections of data in documents, software applications, or books on CDs. A well-constructed system can also incorporate other user-interface conventions, such as menus and command lines. Hypertext can develop very complex and dynamic systems of linking and cross-referencing. The most famous implementation of hypertext is the World Wide Web.

In the late 1980s, Berners-Lee, then a scientist at CERN, invented the World Wide Web to meet the demand for automatic information-sharing among scientists working in different universities and institutes all over the world. In 1992, Lynx was born as an early Internet web browser. Its ability to provide hypertext links within documents that could reach into documents anywhere on the Internet began the creation of the web on the Internet.

Simple plan

Simple plan is one of the best bands of the music world at the moment. They have 3 albums on sale: “No pads, no helemts… just balls”,” Still not getting any” and, their last one, “Simple plan”. In this 3 albums they have several number ones such as “I’d do anything”, “perfect”, “addicted”, “welcome to my life”, “When I’m gone”…

The band is composed by Pierre Bouvier (lead vocals), David Desrosiers (backing vocals and bass), Sebastien Lefebvre (guitar and backing vocals), Chuck Comeau (drums) and, last but not least, Jeff Stinco (lead guitar). They come from Canada, but they actually live in LA.

It’s considered todays one of the busiest band in the world. They have played everywhere, Tokyo, Mexico, Australia, USA, Canda, England, Spain…

This last year, they were the lead band to the U18 “festival” or concerts. It was a great tour because they allowed U18 people go into the concerts, something that was impossible before in this kind of music. The played in 3 places in Spain. One was Barcelona, other was Valencia, and the other one was Bilbao. Well, not exactly Bilbao, but Barakaldo, in the Rock Star. They also went to Madrid, but in July, not april. They played with NoWayOut (from Barcelona) and with Falling Kids (from Madrid) in the first time, and in Madrid they played with the awesome Panic! At the disco, and some other groups (Pignoise, Motel, Despistaos, NoWayOut)

They are coming again to Bilbao. They are playing along with Zebrahead which it’s music is similar to Simple plan. The concert is the 16/11 in “el pabellon de La Casilla” at it starts at 19:00. I recomend you all to go. Their life is great. You won’t regret it.

Tickets are on sale in BBK, Fnac and tick-tack tickets and it’s price is 28€.
