Music 2.0: MashupTown via RSS
I discovered MashupTown via Adam Curry's Daily Source Code, which is a great podcast about podcasts. Curry loves Mashuptown and plays selections from the site nearly every episode. I decided today that I wanted to subscribe to the RSS feed from Mashuptown, to automatically receive new posts and audio files in my aggregator. The site didn't have the general feed link available, so I emailed them and asked for it. I also asked whether they'd like a code snippet for one-click subscribe buttons to the major aggregator services (like I have on my sidebar.) I got an affirmative reply, so hey Art - here's the code you can copy and paste into your site. Thanks so much for the great fun. I'm listening to Mashuptown Radio right now and am finding a few things I'm digging there too.
You'll have to forgive the run on html, off the side of the page. I think that's just how it goes, and it doesn't seem like a real big deal to me. I'll fix it when I find the time to learn how to, but I don't want to break the lines of code up.
I included a link to my explanation of RSS feeds, feel free to remove that if you'd like. Other readers can use this same template to make one-click subscribe buttons on their sites, just replace the Feedburner RSS URL here with your RSS feed URL. Let me know if anyone needs help with that.
