RSS Hitting Critical Mass

Dan Gillmor weighs in on RSS. “”RSS is evolving as a replacement for e-mail publishing and marketing,” [Chris Pirillo] says. “RSS suddenly makes the Internet work the way it should. Instead of you searching for everything, the Internet comes to you on your terms.”

Also see another story in Wired: “Aggregators Attack Info Overload“: “Still, those who use and build RSS aggregators, including Burton, expect RSS to conquer some of the communications territory currently held by announcement lists and online mailing lists such as Yahoo Groups. Many also expect companies to turn increasingly to RSS and aggregators for internal communications.”
