As I’m gradually moving over from push e-mails to RSS on Thunderbird, I’ve started to notice more and more mentions of RSS as being central to future web technologies.
RSS is the internetâ€™s answer to the notification scenarios weâ€™ve discussed and worked on for some time, and is filling a role as â€˜the UNIX pipe of the internetâ€™ as people use it to connect data and systems in unanticipated ways.
In the movement away from a small number of news sources to the larger world of self-publishing in blogs, RSS seems to be more reasonable in handling pull technologies.
