Amazon RSS for New Books

August 3rd, 2002 · No Comments

An innovative idea by Sean Nolan: “Another Amazon Web Services experiment. The idea is this: say you’re interested in books about weblogs. Wouldn’t it be nice to have an RSS feed for all weblog-related books at Amazon, so that when new books became available you’d know about them? Thanks to the magic of web pipelines (Amazon >> XML over HTTP >> XSLT >> ASP >> RSS >> Your News Aggregator), it’s become a pretty trivial thing to put together. ”

These are the type of ideas we need to apply within the enterprise for different types of content. RSS-ify it, and pump it into the information refinery.
