More about RSS

From CNN.COM comes this article, Welcome to the ‘new’ Web, same as the ‘old’ Web – Mar 15, 2004: “Web pages are getting smarter than they used to be. More of your favorite sites are making content summaries and updates available for syndication, just like the syndicated advice columns in your newspaper. Only this kind of syndication is free and ‘really simple.’ It is called ‘RSS’ for ‘really simple syndication.’

All that means for you is that you can download a free or low-cost news feed reader and ‘subscribe’ to a number of your favorite Web sites. You might have seen odd little orange ‘XML’ rectangles on some sites. The URL when you click on the rectangle is the address of the news feed.”

By the way, this was picked up by scanning using Newzcrawler, the news reader I am trying out.
