At the Forge - COREBlog
When you become an established blogging pundit, people will turn to your site several times a day, looking for your latest wisdom and pointers to interesting links. People who follow more than one blog or who want to integrate Weblogs with some news sources use an aggregator program to collect content from various sites. Aggregators do not look at the HTML directly; rather, they retrieve the syndication feed as distributed in RSS.
COREBlog makes it easy to syndicate your site. Indeed, you don't need to do anything in order to syndicate postings on your Weblog. COREBlog takes care of this for you automatically, providing both the popular RDF and RSS formats. There is nothing to configure in order for syndication to work; COREBlog comes with working syndication out of the box.
Content management systems are wonderful for organizations that need them. But if you are running a Web site by yourself, a full-fledged CMS probably is overkill. Many individuals have begun to publish Weblogs in the last few years, and although Weblog software still is in a relatively early stage, such products do make it easy for an individual to get started publishing articles on a regular basis, in an easy-to-understand, standard format. COREBlog is one open-source application for creating and managing Weblogs, and it seems to do an excellent job of offering the basics. It also provides a plugin architecture so new modules can be added to the system without having to restart it from scratch. Next time, we continue on our tour of open-source Weblog software, comparing some other packages to COREBlog.

With all the industry talk about the benefits of Linux on Power and all the performance advantages offered by its open architecture, you may be considering a move in that direction. If you are thinking about analytics, big data and cloud computing, you would be right to evaluate Power. The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model. It doesn’t consider the total cost of ownership, and it doesn’t consider the advantage of real processing power, high-availability and multithreading like a demon.
This ebook takes a look at some of the practical applications of the Linux on Power platform and ways you might bring all the performance power of this open architecture to bear for your organization. There are no smoke and mirrors here—just hard, cold, empirical evidence provided by independent sources. I also consider some innovative ways Linux on Power will be used in the future.Get the Guide
