TechTips: What is RSS anyway, and why the hell should I give a damn?
Sprinkled liberally all over this site you will find the strange codified initialisation RSS. For those of you already introduced to these three letters, youll already know the power of this great little technology, but if you dont know your RSS from your RSL, this post should help to clear a few things up and have you whizzing through content on the net at high speed in no time.
I could claim to be able to speak authoritatively on the technology behind RSS, but Im happy to say that others out there have said it better, so Ill defer to them. The best description/definition of RSS Ive come across is by the unimaginatively but helpfully titled webpage What is RSS? This site offers a one-page summary of the main points of RSS, but if you want a little entertainment with your information [Ed: who doesnt want that?] I cant recommend CommonCrafts RSS in Plain English video enough.
In fact, I cant recommend CommonCrafts videos enough in general, so youre likely to see more links to their entertaining videos from TechTips.
Anyway, check out the video RSS in Plain English below now and start making more of your time online.
