News..com on RSS

News.com on RSS traction. “News.com ran this piece about growth in the use of RSS as a non-news format.  This is a theme many of us are tracking.  What will be the first truly broad killer app to use this?” from Jeremy Allaire’s Radio

The news.com piece makes the good point that RSS has nothing to do with blogs. It is a generic mechanism for pushing notices onto the web in a publish-and-subscribe metaphor. With a standardized format (okay, four), sites can easily be written to gather and process many of these RSS notices. There’s an opportunity there, folks. Wish I could work it out.
