I looked at the source for Nytimesriver.com and it is HTML 4.1. I wonder why Dave didn’t use XHTML Mobile 1.0? Any comments Dave?
Dave Winer fixes mobile news consumption with River-of-News philosophy
I caught this on Jeff’s site this evening…
Dave Winer is up to something important… again. He has been talking about wanting “rivers of news” — that is, headlines stripped of the packaging around them to give him a constant flow of what’s new. And he just created a few to feed his — and our — mobile phones.
As Jeff goes on to explain, Dave has implemented NYTimesRiver.com and BBCRiver.com — simply taking the site’s feed and sticking into an html web page that your Blackberry or any mobile phone will love. Read Dave’s blog about it.
