Stephen Downes simultaneously releases a new piece of software and provides one of the best names I’ve recently encountered: gRSShopper. gRSShopper is a tool for aggregating and managing content. According to Stephen, “I don’t expect massive numbers of downloads or WordPress-like popularity. Rather, I view it as one prong in my overall research effort, a demonstration, in code, of the concepts I talk about in writing.” A demo area is set up for interested parties to play with the software. Great example of putting real examples of theoretical concepts.
