Order from Chaos

Businesses and organizations are catching on to RSS. The verdict: RSS is a welcome addition to the workplace.

InformationWeek puts a spot on RSS today in an article entitled Order from Chaos via RSS. Here are a couple of the key excerpts:

[RSS] technology, used for the past few years by bloggers and news junkies, is finding a place in business-computing environments as a fast and easy way to channel information to customers, employees, and partners.

RSS gives people an efficient new way to organize their information resources. Users can track the publication of frequently updated content across any number of sites simultaneously from a single, simple interface, and, because they only receive the RSS feeds to which they subscribe, filtering unrequested information isn’t necessary.

Because RSS was designed from the outset to be a means for summarizing information, the feeds can be scanned and comprehended easily.
