http://tagtalking.net/feed/?tags=bozo  is working now.

Some problems remain ...
  • If someone starts off by attaching media from the web, then we don't know the media length to put in the enclosure element.  This will still work for most aggregators, i think, but it doesn't work in the Google Reader (my prefered feed reader)  ... there it shows the player, but nothing plays.
    • The solution is (1) either ask the user for the length (yuck, many people won't know how to obtain that); or (2) figure out how to read the length of the file out on the web via some php http get ... which so far has proven to be quite a challenge for me.  Practical solutions gleefully accepted. 
    • .... or now that i wrote it all  out the solution is obvious and already implemented.  Simply default the length to a high value ... say 100,000,000 bytes.  Then Google seems to be happy with it and joyfully plays just as much of it as is actually there.
  • The author element has not been filled out on entries.  Mybe if i wrap it down, the solution will instantly emerge above.  If a (group?) specifies author as a element to input, then it is easy to look for that and put it in the feed.  But what if that group does not want to bother to input an author?  Thing is it is always sombody who posts.  Is that person not always the author of the post? So if you cannot post unless you sign in to tagtalking, then why not default the author to that user name.  Of course i'll need to implement users before this will work.
