RSS Awareness Day: 1st of May 2008

1st of May has been named RSS Awareness Day. A very good initiative, as many people still don't know "What is RSS" and "How to use the RSS feeds" to keep up with the latest information, such as news feeds, journals' table of content, newsletters feeds, websites of interest, etc.
What is RSS?
RSS (Really Simple Syndication) is a format used to deliver information from websites and pages that get updated regularly. An RSS document (which is called feed) contains either a summary or the full content from a website.
The main benefit of RSS is that it enables people to stay connected with their favorite websites without having to visit them. Once you subscribe to a particular RSS feed, you will automatically receive updates from the website that publishes the feed, whenever they release new content.
