JSON Activity Streams Spec Hits Version 1.0

first_imgThe JSON Activity Streams spec has hit a 1.0 release. Activity Streams provides a common protocol for creating and parsing activity streams. The ATOM version was already at 1.0. The Facebook Wall is probably the most famous example of an activity stream, but just about any application could generate a stream of information in this format. Using a common format for activity streams could enable applications to communicate with one another, and presents new opportunities for information aggregation.In our interview with him earlier this year, developer Max Ogden explained the appeal of Activity Streams:ActivityStreams is implementing what is called “actor-verb-object” logic to represent social streams. So if you look at the front page of Github, of Twitter, of Facebook or any other social network (or feed) you can extract actor verb object triples such as “Max pushed a new piece of functionality to his project on github” or “Tyler posted ‘hello max’ to your wall” or “Klint uploaded a photo of his cat to icanhazcheezburger.”Activity Streams is already in use at BBC, Gowalla, Socialcast and at several other companies. We really hope to see this take off in a number of applications, since it will make creating aggregated activity streams much easier. We’ve discussed how something like this could be used in enterprise applications here.

Jarencio lightens up Batang Pier mood amid playoff chase; Elite stay in quarterfinal hunt

first_img‘We cannot afford to fail’ as SEA Games host – Duterte In only his first conference in charge, the former UAAP champion coach of University of Santo Tomas has injected a light and positive atmosphere within the Batang Pier as they make a push for a playoff spot.The Batang Pier went on to register a 108-91 victory over the Picanto as they stayed on track for a Top 6 finish at the end of the PBA Philippine Cup elimination round at Smart Araneta Coliseum.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSSEA Games: Biñan football stadium stands out in preparedness, completionSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSBoxers Pacquiao, Petecio torchbearers for SEA Games opening“Coach is like a friend to us, but at the same time we give him the utmost respect,” Araña said in Filipino. “The atmosphere has been great whether we win or we lose. Every time we lose, he tells us to move forward and focus on the next game.”Jarencio’s approach is paying dividends with the Batang Pier improving to 5-5 for a tie of sixth spot with Barangay Ginebra heading into their final game of the elimination round against Phoenix Petroleum on March 2. SEA Games: PH still winless in netball after loss to Thais “The mind-set right now is to try to get into that Top 6 so we will play a best-of-three series in the quarterfinals,” said Sean Anthony, who had 21 points, eight rebounds and four steals in 27 minutes on the floor. “We want to be playoff-ready and that Phoenix game is another playoff game.”Later, Blackwater tightened up its defense down the stretch to close out the elimination round with an 83-78 trouncing of Phoenix Petroleum to keep its quarterfinal hopes alive.Mike DiGregorio, Mac Belo and Raymar Jose each finished with 14 points, while JP Erram continued his stellar showing with 12 points and 19 boards for seventh double-double of the conference as the Elite wound up with a 5-6 record.“We’re hoping that five wins will be enough for a playoff for the quarterfinals. We’re looking forward to playing more games this conference,” said Blackwater coach Leo Isaac.ADVERTISEMENT Ethel Booba on hotel’s clarification that ‘kikiam’ is ‘chicken sausage’: ‘Kung di pa pansinin, baka isipin nila ok lang’ ‘A complete lie:’ Drilon refutes ‘blabbermouth’ Salo’s claims Altas seek 11th NCAA men’s plum vs Chiefs BeautyMNL open its first mall pop-up packed with freebies, discounts, and other exclusives PH military to look into China’s possible security threat to power grid Robredo: True leaders perform well despite having ‘uninspiring’ boss PLAY LIST 02:49Robredo: True leaders perform well despite having ‘uninspiring’ boss02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games01:44Philippines marks anniversary of massacre with calls for justice01:19Fire erupts in Barangay Tatalon in Quezon City01:07Trump talks impeachment while meeting NCAA athletes02:49World-class track facilities installed at NCC for SEA Gamescenter_img Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.
