Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. This article is specifically dedicated to the history of web syndication technology and, more generally, to the history of technical innovation on many dialects of web syndication feeds such as RSS and Atom, as well as earlier variants such as Channel Definition Format and more recent innovations like Gdata. Before RSS, several similar formats already existed for syndication, but none achieved widespread popularity or are still in common use today, as most were envisioned to work only with a single service. These originated from push and pull technologies. Two of the earliest examples are Backweb and Pointcast.[citation needed] Between 1995 and 1997, Ramanathan V. Guha and others at Apple's Advanced Technology Group developed the Meta Content Framework. MCF was a specification for structuring metadata information about web sites and other data, and the basis of Project X, a 3D flythrough visualizer for the web. When the research project was discontinued, Guha left Apple for Netscape.show more
