Tantek Çelik generates (using Falcon) a minimal subset Atom+ActivityStreams feed on tantek.com from storage. Due to bandwidth inefficiency of XML formats (and apparent bandwidth abuse of XML consuming code/servers), his Atom feed file only has the most recent 1 item(s), whereas his h-feed on his home page has the latest 64 items (as of 2015-265). See also feed file: Criticism and in particular feed: Criticism.
- The feeds are automatically generated from the h-entry microformats on the page, so I only have to maintain the HTML which works for humans and machines rather than two copies. The endpoint I use for converting is open for anyone to use: microformats to ATOM --Barnaby Walters 10:17, 10 February 2015 (PST)
Christian Weiske's blog natively generates full-text atom feeds for tag-filtered and all posts

- Entries includes simple reply/repost context
gRegor Morrill publishes an Atom feed for articles as of 2015-02-11
- Previously I was publishing an RSS 2.0 feed that was delivered by FeedBurner. I migrated back to a self-hosted feed due to the unsure future of FeedBurner, plus having more control of the feed since it is on my own domain again.
hfeed2atom converts h-feeds to atom feeds.
- unmung generates an h-feed from any Atom or RSS one
Atom feeds can be automatically discovered by feed readers if the homepage contains a link to it in its <head> tag:
<link rel="alternate" type="application/atom+xml" title="Feed" href="atomfeed.xml" />
The title is important if there are multiple feeds linked, e.g. category and comment feeds.

- 2003-06-16 The effort to define a "conceptual data model of what constitutes a well formed log entry" blogged by Sam Ruby in Anatomy of a Well Formed Log Entry was the start of what became Atom.
- 2003-06-23 the effort that became Atom was more formerly launched, with various supporting blog posts in the following days. A small sample from the launch roadmap:

Echo was the second name given the to syndication format project that became Atom. Early pages/posts that mention Echo:
