Really Simple Stuff

Really Simple Stuff… Isn’t that what RSS stands for? Ok, so its acutally stands for Really Simple Syndication, or Rich Site Summary.  Defined by Google as: a lightweight XML format for distributing news headlines and other content on the web.  A way to share content from several websites, and have it all published in one place for the reader.

I think a good way to explain RSS is to relate it to syndicated television networks, such as UPN.  They take all of your favorite shows, such as Friends, Everybody Loves Raymond, The Simpsons, and maybe even some Family Guy and Southpark, and have it all there on the same channel for you.  RSS does the same thing, it takes content from the sites you want, and puts it all into one place for you.  Its really simple.
