Note to Government: Learn What RSS Means

Posted September 30th, 2008 by

Let’s talk process flow rants here for a second.

Every couple of weeks, OMB issues a new memorandum setting policy for the executive branch.  They release the memo to the agency heads who then respond–a policy-based syn/ack/fin loop if you will.

All the memos are set up on the OMB website at this url.

Notice something missing?  Where is the RSS feed?  Seriously, if you want somebody other than just the agency heads to be informed of all your newest issues, you need to make it subscribable either via email or RSS feed.  There are tons of people who would subscribe, and it makes your job that much easier.

This rant was brought to you by the letters R and S.  =)

    What? You don’t manually visit all your news sites and blogs and that site too? You’re moving too fast into this technology thing!

    Not to rain on your rant here, but ahh … the RSS you are looking for is here:

    I found it on this page:

    The problem is that the RSS is like 2 days behind whatever notification is sent to the agencies.

    I know this because I get the notification 2 days after you announce it. And then I look like I am not paying attention.


    Seriously though, an late rss feed is almost as bad as not having one.
