CNN: RSS Is the Next Big Thing
Yes, RSS is cool. But it's been cool for quite some time, and this story is old.
The point of entry into this efficient and focused style of surfing does not involve search engines. Instead, many users, learning from bloggers, are setting aside their browsers at certain times to use news feed readers, sometimes called "news aggregators," instead.
News aggregators. I think I've heard that somewhere before....
If you are still attached to your daily newspaper or CNN Headline News fix, don't worry. News feed readers are less about "news" as they are an alternative on-ramp to the Web.
Whew. Good thing Christine Boese gave me that context. I was really worried there for a minute about CNN's business model.
