RSS Blog & RSS News
Bloglines & Bandwith Issues

Bloglines announced on Tuesday that it has expanded its Web services program so that news readers can connect to its free online service for searching and subscribing to RSS (Really Simple Syndication) and Atom feeds.

Bloglines, which started in June 2003 under the umbrella of technology incubator Trustic Inc., aggregates RSS and Atom feed subscriptions from its users, then checks once an hour for an updated feed from a publisher, said Mark Fletcher, CEO of the Redwood City, Calif., company.

"Our system acts essentially as an RSS cache and completely eliminates the RSS bandwidth issue," Fletcher said. "We want people to be publishing more RSS feeds, and that's good for the whole industry, and we believe that it makes sense for us to work with some of the desktop aggregators." More

RSS Hype - Interesting Article

That's because few technologies in recent years have received the same kind of broad media hype that has been lavished on RSS.

But it took only a day for bloggers to show the emperor has no clothes, exposing CBS for airing a report based on possibly forged documents about President Bush (news - web sites)'s National Guard service. more

Google Renews Interest in RSS

Google is considering renewing support for the popular RSS Web publishing format in some of its services, CNET has learned, marking the latest twist in a burgeoning standards war over technology that could change how people read the news.

RSS, or Really Simple Syndication, lets online publishers automatically send Web content to subscribers, giving readers a powerful tool to compile news headlines on the fly from several sources at once.
