Decentering Syndication or, a Push Away from RSS

Jim Groom, Sept 21, 2013
Commentary by Stephen Downes

RSS pulls content from other sites into yours (or into your feedreader). Decentering syndication pushes content from your site into other sites. The most common forms of this are cases where the content is pushed into a social network like Twitter or Facebook (you can see an example with the @OLDaily Twitter feed). In this post Jim Groom describes push syndication plugins for WordPress, which use XML-RPC to send content from one WordPress site to another. In  both cases the objective is the same: to reduce dependence on a single site, to distribute content, and to create a network of interactions.
