New Digg-like Site for Oracle
By oracletechnet on Jan 01, 2008
Thanks to Oracle ACE Director Matt Topper for his pioneering ora-click site, where you can submit Oracle-related stories for Digg-like treatment. Recently Oracle ACE Director Eddie Awad and Matt worked together to integrate Eddie's OraNA news aggregator feed with ora-click such that many (if not most) posts across the Oracle blogosphere automatically become ora-click fodder. I love this!
Here at Oracle we explored a similar project about a year ago, which would have used some new and interesting standards-based technology for a very similar purpose. Unfortunately we ran into resource-related challenges that killed the project.
Really glad to see that the community has picked up this idea instead, which is right and proper anyway.
