Defacto2 Feeds

If you are not familiar with RSS or Atom feeds Wikipedia has a good primer on the subject. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Web_feed


Each of the 1000+ organisations listed within our site has a unquie Atom feed. These feeds list the most recent files uploaded to Defacto2 that were publish for or published by the organisation. To obtain the feed you just insert feed-atom into the URL.

So its Atom feed is found at http://www.defacto2.net/organisation/feed-atom/ansi-creators-in-demand
