You'll notice a round corned orange icon to the right of this page. If you clic on it a screen will appear which will prompt you how to post comments, and thereby participate in the Business of Art Training, B.O.A.T. inc. blog. You'll also notice at the far right in the address bar the letters RSS. RSS is as a family of web feed formats used in sites like blogs where there's frequent updates. By burning a web feed reader, the B.O.A.T. inc. blog will be more accessible to more people. (The letters RSS stand for "Really Simple Syndication" but sometimes "Rich Site Summary".) Web feeds benefit publishers, like bloggers, by letting them syndicate content automatically. They benefit readers who want to subscribe to timely updates from favored websites or to aggregate feeds from many sites into one place.

The widespread use of RSS web feeds and the RSS feed readers downloadable software since 2005 means its not new stuff, considering the pace we're moving, e.g.. "twitter", ipod broadcasts, and cell phone texting and imaging technology. It seems like just yesterday we artists were scurring around with issues around development of websites. Websites are cumbersome to maintain, unless you know html, or as I do, use Dreamweaver software. Even then, it takes more time to do than uploading on Facebook, or the blogg, and if you have a Flickr or Picaso account you don't have to use valuable hard drive storage for your images. Remember "watermarks" to protect our copyright, and the worry that someone might drag and drop one of your images onto their desktop? Well, with YouTube, facebook, etc. etc. the pace is so fast many have let go of this type of thinking as limiting to their creativity.

  1. I am going to open my site for Technology and I like your blog. I feel that with technology making progress in leaps and bounds, satellite channels are becoming better in terms of satellite service. The demand of the satellite TV consumer for a better audio-visual experience has picked up. Satellite channel providers are now better equipped to give us that unique experience. TV channels are also coming up with quality entertainment programs to give the satellite TV consumers their value for money.
