Machine Shop: Hype Machine Team Blog

Overwhelmed by too many new links in the Hype Machine RSS feed?

Mersenne from Undomondo kindly wrote to me about the volume of the tracks that appear in the main Hype Machine RSS feed.

He pointed out a few valid problems:
• Some bloggers post an overwhelming amount of tracks in each post
• Others post a large amount of tracks by the same artist

Both of the above issues end up flooding the front page as well as the RSS feed.

If you’ve been having a similar problem, you may want to try the Hype Machine feed of post excerpts. Each message in the feed contains a short excerpt as well as a nice listing of the songs mentioned in the post.

To get a better idea of what this looks like, you can look at the posts section of the Hype Machine.
