Take-Off DataPoint Workshop

Various authors, Take-Off, Jun 03, 2004
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Robin Good explains this nicely in today's newsletter: "The Take-off RSS news reader from DataPoint gathers RSS news and sends them directly into a Microsoft Access database. From there they can be easily pulled inside one or more presentation slides. Thus, you could have fresh and updated news feeds to show on your class opening presentation slide or you could display the latest relevant stock, or future prices for the very items that you have been covering in your presentation." I haven't tried it, but it's a great concept. Almost as good as sending your emails to an RSS feed (though you have to install a script on your your email server to use it - and almost nobody has access to their email server).
