PubSubHubbub for Google alerts: a small real time step
Google wants to make the web programmable because the one application can be extended by another to create new applications. That is how they open their post on the Google code blog. In this post they explain how they enabled #v144# for Google alerts.
The PubSubHubbub-protocol (who ever came up with that name?) is not just about mash ups. It's more advanced. Google for example gives the Wave Robots API as an example of a wat to give "developers the power to enhance and modify the behavior of Wave in new ways that no-one has envisioned."
In the last weeks Google already added the protocol to other Google services like FeedBurner, Reader shared items and Blogger.
