You’ve probably seen the postings in the past on this blog about the Simple Sharing Extensions (SSE) for RSS. SSE was originally introduced by Ray Ozzie on his blog as a way to enable syncing items between different points on the web. We’ve recently updated the spec to support Atom feeds as well.

I posted the latest Simple Sharing Extensions spec to MSDN last month, at I’ve received a bunch of great comments and suggestions on the spec, and I’m in the process of incorporating those into a new draft. I’ll be sending out the proposed updates to the FEED-TECH list over the next few days. You can see the first change set here. I’ll also be discussing these changes on my personal blog at

It would be great to hear people’s thoughts about the spec and the updates. The best way to respond is to join the FEED-TECH list and post your comments there. Thanks!
