Publish Your Own Channel on Netcenter
Monday March 15th, 1999
That's right. Now anyone can publish their own channel on My Netscape. You may have seen mozillaZine's channel (linked to on the navbar at right). They've finalized the spec behind the channels, and opened it up to the public. We'll have a link to the "new and improved" mozillaZine channel soon - we'll let you know. I'd suggest holding off until we get the new URL up - the old channel will be going offline soon. To read more about putting your own site's channel on My Netscape, head on over to My Netscape's publishing area.
In the meantime, if you want to get have our headlines appear on your own page, just grab and parse http://www.mozillazine.org/contents.txt. All we ask is that if you put this information on a site that's open for public viewing, please indicate that the information came from mozillaZine. Also, if you do an automatic grab of the file, please try to limit it to once every hour, at most.
Joel Caris wrote in with a link to news about this new feature: "This News.com article says that, finally, Netscape has it officially set up for channels from other web sites to be added to My Netscape, such as has been done with MozillaZine. I always thought this was the greatest strength of My Netscape, and believe it to be a very smart move that they are making it official and expanding the process."
#3 a Short era unless we get some quick innovation

I agree with mark, this a the beginning of a new era in content propagation. However, if they don't find a better way to manage all these channels, it will come and go quicker then "push". I really don't want _ALL_ my online content on one page, but having lots of publishers is great.
