RSS Feeds

Posted May 23, 2005 10:00 AM by Chris Leonard

Last week, I attended the Syndicate Conference in New York City, which focused largely on the way RSS feeds are changing how people find and receive information on the Web. As one of the lead editors at Conference Room 4 (CR4), I have been working with RSS feeds the last few months to monitor news on Engineering, Science and Technology and to provide news feeds from CR4 to the outside world. I must admit, I am a bit of a novice on RSS, but plan to research it heavily and work to put it into action. The focus of this blog is to chronicle what I find that relates to RSS syndication - useful sites, new tools and new theories on syndicating information.

For those who are unaware of RSS (Rich Site Summary or Really Simple Syndication). Wikipedia provides a pretty good, and reasonably readable overview on RSS and it is right to the point.

Tomorrow, I'll talk about finding RSS feeds.
