I think that RSS feeds may be one of the neatest thing since sliced bread. Well, maybe the neatest thing since Star Trek or Star Wars.
I think my first experience with RSS feeds was when I started podcasting and I needed to create them for my podcasts. I found a neat WYSIWYG feed creation program that allowed me RSS feeds. It is a great program for DIY and I didn’t need to have a degree in computer programming to use it.
Soon I began to find RSS feeds in my databases as on blogs, wikis, and other tools. When I got my smartphone, and later my tablet computer, I found that many of the apps I was using were powered with RSS feeds. And then soon were discovered feed aggregators. Zowwie!
RSS feeds are powerful tools and I look forward to sharing the idea of them, along with readers and aggregators, with my students and teachers.
