Join The RSS Love

For reasons yet to be determined, Adaptistration has enjoyed a nice spike in RSS feed subscriptions over the past few weeks. This heady leap made me realize that I rarely promote all of the useful RSS options readers have available to follow posts, comments, and comment threads; as such, there’s no better time than the present…

The primary RSS feed option most folks are familiar with is the main site feed, which is available via the orange RSS icon next to the search field. You can plug an RSS feed URL into a seemingly endless array of widgets and aggregators, all of which are designed to help bring a lot of content to one in one convenient page.

Less familiar but equally useful is the main comment feed, which provides an automatic list of every incoming comment to each article. There’s a text link located in the left sidebar, under the “Become A Member” heading, although I’ll be adding a more prominent icon in the near future.

Comment RSS feed per entry

The last RSS option is more targeted, but indispensable when you want to follow comment conversations related to a specific post. You can subscribe to comment RSS feeds per entry via the orange RSS icon to the left of the “Comments” header at the top of each comment section.

If you’re not into RSS, no worries. You can still rely on good ‘ol reliable e-mail. Those in the know and those who want to know can stay on top of everything at Adaptistration via the Weekly Email Summary, delivered like clockwork every Friday.

About Drew McManus

"I hear that every time you show up to work with an orchestra, people get fired." Those were the first words out of an executive's mouth after her board chair introduced us. That executive is now a dear colleague and friend but the day that consulting contract began with her orchestra, she was convinced I was a hatchet-man brought in by the board to clean house.

I understand where the trepidation comes from as a great deal of my consulting and technology provider work for arts organizations involves due diligence, separating fact from fiction, interpreting spin, as well as performance review and oversight. So yes, sometimes that work results in one or two individuals "aggressively embracing career change" but far more often than not, it reinforces and clarifies exactly what works and why.

In short, it doesn't matter if you know where all the bodies are buried if you can't keep your own clients out of the ground, and I'm fortunate enough to say that for more than 15 years, I've done exactly that for groups of all budget size from Qatar to Kathmandu.

For fun, I write a daily blog about the orchestra business, provide a platform for arts insiders to speak their mind, keep track of what people in this business get paid, help write a satirical cartoon about orchestra life, hack the arts, and love a good coffee drink.
