stupid RSS feeds from Microsoft.

A couple of months ago I subscribed to the Developer Chats feed from Microsoft. It's got to be one of the most stupid, badly designed, not thought out feed ever. Here we are talking about scheduling chats, so you'd expect the feed to include a date, a time and a link to enter the chat room, right ? Well not according to who-ever put that together at Microsoft.
What's really scary though is this actually went live !! It means either who ever put that useless feed together didn't report to anyone, which is scary in itself, or those they reported to didn't even look at it.. still scary !!
Fortunately, for an example of how it should be done, we don't have to go far at all... matter of a fact, even in the same company. Jana Carter puts together great chat notifications, the way they should be, just as if you are inviting someone to join the chat.
It's great to see some people at Microsoft "get it" , even though others seem completely clueless.
