Information and Content Exchange (ICE) is an XML-based protocol used for content syndication via the Internet. By using XML both sender and receiver have an agreed-upon language in which to communicate. The system uses a client–server architecture.
On October 27, 1998 the completion of ICE 1.0 was announced at a press summit in San Francisco. In June 2004, a new, Web Services compliant version, ICE 2.0 was released to support industrial strength syndication for the next generation of the Web.
Content management is usually built into the ICE server.
Famous quotes containing the words exchange, information and/or content:
“I know nothing which life has to offer so satisfying as the profound good understanding, which can subsist, after much exchange of good offices, between two virtuous men, each of whom is sure of himself, and sure of his friend. It is a happiness which postpones all other gratifications, and makes politics, and commerce, and churches, cheap.”
—Ralph Waldo Emerson (18031882)
“On the breasts of a barmaid in Sale
Were tattooed the prices of ale;
And on her behind
For the sake of the blind
Was the same information in Braille.”
“Sir Charles: Arent you drinking?
Princess Dala: I dont drink.
Sir Charles: Never?
Princess Dala: Im quite content with reality, I have no need for escape.
Sir Charles: Well, I enjoy reality as much as the next man, its just in my case, fortunately, reality includes a good stiff belt every now and then.”
—Blake Edwards (b. 1922)
