50125307_f57fb9c6dc_m I have long bemoaned the fact that there are quality sites out there that have not stepped up to the RSS challenge.

For example, Urbanism.org is an amazing site for the aggregation of all things Urban since 2003. It covers Environmental issues, New Urbanism, Architecture, Water, Food, Transportation, but it has never had an RSS or Atom Feed. Until now…

By using a site called Dapper, I created a feed for Urbansim.org. Now I no longer have to rip the site via Plucker and read it on my Palm, rather, I can read Urbanism.org in Google Reader, or in any feed reader I want for that matter.

The web address for the feed was super long, so I shrunk it down using TinyURL.

For those who love the great aggregation of Urbanism, but have been turned off by the lack of feed, fear no more!

Here’s the feed address… http://tinyurl.com/63hvqd

If someone who knows the Great Minds behind Urbanism.org, I’d love to have these guys post this on the site, so that more people can share their great compilation of work.


By publishing this post, and creating the feed, I’m in no way trying to step on anyone’s toes or breach copyright, I’m just trying to make updates to this content available to the masses through new technology. If the owners of Urbanism.org feel that I am breaching copyright, I will apologize and "uncreate" my feed.

  1. I made a feed for this a while back, and after looking at what Dapper is generating for the feed, you might find this one to be more accurate.
