There’s been a lot of chatter recently about Feedburner’s support for the PubSubHubbub protocol.

Apparently, it means that blog posts show up much quicker in FriendFeed, Google Reader and other services. I must admit I was fairly sceptical as my posts still take a couple of hours to appear.

However, I was wrong (again). Look at this recent example. The post showed up a full three and a half hours on Google Reader before I published it.

Google Reader

Apparently, the next release will read your mind, type the words in, link to relevant pictures and publish your blog entries automatically. It’s called the ‘real-time Web’.
