7 Things RSS Is Good For  
Via Librarystuff comes a short list of 7 things RSS is good for (New Media Musings).

The seven things?

  • saving time;

  • convenience;

  • access to a richer pool of material;

  • zero in on the information you want;

  • to serve as an alert service;

  • levelling the playing field (between micro-publishers and major news sites);

  • to drive conversation;

On the off-chance anyone has been wondering where I was, I moved flat and had a lot of trouble getting internet access hooked up.
