Notifixious – A notification platform

I’ve recently registered to Notifixious home page, a notification platform that integrates XMPP natively. Though the application is not looking as polished as one might hope it already provides interesting features.

Overall I think any work towards better notification system is the right idea. We need better ways to notify people or get notified about relevant piece of information. From a technology’s perspective transport protocols (well at the application’s level) already exist to perform the task of carrying the information, they are namely HTTP and XMPP. However there is still quite a large gap to fill about what to carry exactly. Notifixious doesn’t solve that gap per se but offers at least a good base for playing around with some floating ideas. For instance I’ve introduced today the Notifixious’s crowd to LLUP which has been initiated and carried on for a few years now to answer that specific problem. Perhaps it’ll make it way through.

Update: The guys at Notifixious just posted a message about how PubSub is heavily used by their service.
