A lot of colleagues have heard about RSS but so far did not use it on a daily base in function of their professional activities. RSS (Really simple syndication) can be explained in a really simple way. Therefore we invited you to watch RSS in Plain English.
RSS can be seen as a protocol where you easily can subscribe to content based on your own interests and needs. You aggregate this content with a RSS reader or an aggregator (for example Google Reader or Bloglines). Once logged on you automatically receive updates and this can save you a lot of time and effort. Basically it is an advanced way to organize the huge amount of information on the Internet.
