How and Why RSS is Alive and Well

Idealware

Image: SRD RSS, one of my favorite protocols , has been taking a beating in the blogosphere. Steve Gillmor, in his blog TechcrunchIT , declared it dead in May, and many others have followed suit. RSS is, and always has been about, taking control of the information you peruse.

A new look at RSS: Fever

I admit it, I have a serious RSS habit. Thanks to Fever , a brand new RSS feed reader from web guru Shaun Inman , it’s okay. They shouldn’t be read and organized like a standard inbox handles email messages, which is the way most readers treat RSS feeds. Headlines news feeds, link blogs, those blogs that just react, Twitter feeds, etc. I no longer feel that I have to resist subscribing to RSS feeds for fear of overwhelming myself.

Those of you who visit pages besides the blog here at Idealware have noted that my article Using RSS Tools to Feed your Information Needs is up. If you're an old hand at RSS, then I'm hoping the article will serve as a good tool when trying to impress others of the value of syndication. RSS is a big topic, and writing the article was, in one respect, a challenge: in order to write a solid, intermediate guide to RSS use, I had to narrow the scope a bit.
