Those of you that know me, know I can often get over-excited about technology. In a completely dorky way. Well, here I go again…
I was recently discussing the wonders of RSS with Jabiz. I actually said: “Jabiz, you are not truly harnessing the power of the web unless you’re utilizing RSS.” Yes, I said “harnessing the power of the web” in all seriousness and in a very enthusiastic kind of way (mostly because I had already posted about it here).
Anyway, I’m sure that statement did not really clear anything up for good old Jabiz because I really didn’t describe why or how RSS allows you to do all that harnessing. Lucky for me, this awesome post that describes RSS in a very approachable way, came up in my RSS aggregator today that will do the job for me.
“We all have busy lives with very little time. Web surfing is fun but can take hours going to visit every single website and blog you enjoy. Wouldn’t it be fabulous if you could just get all the headlines of the most current stories from all your favorite websites and blogs in one place?
Well now you can, and it is called RSS feed.”

Interestingly, this post actually came up under my “professional” set of feeds. My two worlds are colliding/merging! All because of RSS…
