You asked for it. We built it. BrianMadden.com is now your source for everything happening in the application delivery industry, whether those "happenings" are happening on our site or another site in our community. Today marks the public unveiling of our "Community News Aggregator."
Many people have asked us to cover more "breaking news" and "industry news." We've always felt that if other sites in the community write about stuff, then why should we also? Is it worth us creating a blog post that says "Hey, check out what this guy did" when anyone with an RSS reader could just subscribe to the feed itself? But we understand the value of getting all your information from a single source, and we understand that it's easier for you if someone like us sorts through the hundreds of RSS items each day and posts only the ones that are most relevant to our community.
So we build the new Community News Aggregator. You can access via www.brianmadden.com/news, or you can view the most recent items in the right-hand column of the main page on BrianMadden.com. (And of course, if anything is really really interesting, we'll feature it front-and-center on BrianMadden.com.
When we were designing this thing, it was important to us that we gave full credit to the original authors of the posts and articles that come through over the RSS wire. After all, it wouldn't be fair for us to just repost someone else's content without giving them credit! So in addition to linking to the article, we give the author full credit in our system, and we show you which content comes from which feeds and which authors.
We have a very active and vocal community at BrianMadden.com. We're extremely excited about this new feature that will let us all follow the entire industry from one place, and allow us all to discuss and rate content from across the industry.
