Virginia Recognized for RSS Services

RSS in Government: Virginia Recognized for RSS Services. My home state won an award for its embrace of RSS on the Commonwealth’s official web site, with about 34 feeds (plus more on the way). The RSS 0.91 feeds appear to be auto-generated by the CMS system behind the site and have a few quirks—for one, the XML button on each page isn’t linked to the feed, so dragging it into an aggregator doesn’t work. But they’re making the effort, and in the spirit of truly locally useful content, there isn’t a single feed I’ve found yet that I would want to subscribe to from my current position out of state. 🙂
