Feed management: Demand-driven satellite audio feeds

Here is the concept on XMSatL. Users can provide inputs to their computers. Their goals. Their milestones. Their deadlines.

And this information is aggregated. To make sure the RSS feeds are provided. When the user need them. When the feeds are most timely.

The user decides. Not the feeds.

Narrow cast

The trick is to be able to provide these feed management summaries globally. One approach might be to establish a set-aside channel on the satellite radio. That permits the user to narrowcast their feed summaries to them.

We have cellular going from point to point. There's no reason we can't have a feed management system going directly to the individual user. Encrypted. Tailored. On demand.

Think of it as users being able to manage their XML feed, but applying this concept to their satellite feed. No longer are they idle consumers.

They are now able to ensure the satellite feed is giving them the information they need when they need it.


XMLSatL: Satellite stream bundle


- It is a summary feed management tool

- It can time summary info

- It could provides content that individual users choose


It wasn't all that long ago that there was "no internet." Yes, there was a time when nobody thought of linking individual computers together.

At that time, nobody thought that content could be tailed to the individual. Now, we have users choosing XML feeds.

The next step is to let the user manage those feeds. But not just the text. But also the audio. And the channels themselves.

Perhaps one day we'll be able to tell the cable company what we want to see. Oh, they have that.

Why not have the same thing for RSS feeds and satellite radio?

They can transcribe audio to text. Why not transcribe RSS feeds into summary reports?


Example users


Feeds created to prepare for a meeting

Timed to provide reminders

Audio-reminders, updates

Pre-meeting preparation, focus

Caselaw results: Updates provide on counter-party approaches; apply those as stand before the court.


The possibilities are endless.

The issue come down to this.

Does the consumer want it, or will they demand it?

And will the advertising streams sustain the infrastructure?

We've come along way from broadsheets.

Perhaps its not a matter of if, but when.
