What is RSS?

Leave it to [Joseph][] to find (and link to) all the cool stuff… One of his [recent “del.icio.us links”](http://joseph.randomnetworks.com/archives/2007/06/07/links-for-thu-7-jun-2007/) is a 3.5 minute video, [RSS in Plain English][]. It’s a gentle introduction to RSS and feedreaders, specifically tailored to non-technical web users. The video assumes some basic familiarity with the web and web browsers–you know what “right-clicking” means, and you read more than one blog and/or news site with some regularity.

I didn’t see links to feedreader sites mentioned in the video, so here they are:

* [Google feed reader](http://www.google.com/reader)

* [Bloglines feed reader](http://www.bloglines.com/)

* [Newsgator feed reader](http://www.newsgator.com/Individuals/NewsGatorOnline/)

* [My Yahoo!](http://my.yahoo.com/), which can be used as a feed reader.

About Jim Vanderveen

I'm a bit of a Renaissance man, with far too many hobbies for my free time! But more important than any hobby is my family. My proudest accomplishment has been raising some great kids! And somehow convincing my wife to put up with me since 1988. ;)
