Abstract: Many Web-based data sources and services are available as feeds, a model thatprovides consumers with a loosely coupled way of interacting with providers.The current feed model is limited in its capabilities, however. Though it issimple to implement and scales well, it cannot be transferred to a wider rangeof application scenarios. This paper conceptualizes feeds as a way to serializequery results, describes the current hardcoded query semantics of such aperspective, and surveys the ways in which extensions of this hardcoded modelhave been proposed or implemented. Our generalized view of feeds as queryresult serializations has implications for the applicability of feeds as ageneric Web service for any collection that is providing access to individualinformation items. As one interesting and compelling class of applications, wedescribe a simple way in which a query-based approach to feeds can be used tosupport location-based services.
