What Is RSS specification?

You may have been seeing these little orange XML RSS specification buttons, like this around various and growing amount of pages more frequently as you look about on the Internet.

If by chance, you were wondering what they are.....
Well ok, I'll tell you!

It's the next big bang! That's what it is!

It's "the next big thing" -- you can use it to get newsfeeds from CNN or BBC, as well as just about anything else, including news on upcoming movies, DVD releases, your favorite musician's tour updates, etc. The list is endless but you can also choose how many you get in the reader.

I use it, it's like getting the needle in the haystack to come to you, without all the straw! (AND it's totally spam proof).
Use it to keep updated with info useful to assist your machine information systems, machine shop project.

Once you get started, it's like having your favorite parts of the Web come to you. No need to go out and check for updates all the time.

RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication.
What it means to you is that when you subscribe to a site that has a XML RSS specification feed, you can keep up-to-date without having to check the site every day or week.

Like I've said, I use it already and it's great getting the needle in the haystack to drop at your feet when you weren't even looking for it. It's a really great idea whom ever thought it up. You can get RSS weather, RSS news, RSS football and you can even do a RSS search too.
(Sounds like someone at school made up the name though!)

So, how do you get started? Easy!
