RSS Syndicated: Biz Models for RSS

I'm at this conference, RSS Syndicate, at a panel called New Pathways to Profits: Exploring Business Models. Amos Schwartzfarb, of, Alex Williams of Corante and Paul Forster of are talking with Mark Harmon.

So, Forster just suggested that one business model might be to have a conference blogger doing regular updates, and then charge for those, via RSS.

Say what? How bout that's a value add to make the conference better. And what about all of the rest of us who live blog.. are we competitors in that model?

And Forster just talked about sponsored job results? But not with ads. Is that like sponsored search results? I really love those.

Consumers, markets, monitization. Over and over. Wo.

Okay. As Doc just blogged:

I say.. guys, you're in the matrix. You need to take the red pill, and get off the consumer rant.

Ps. this is freely live blogged for your pleasure. No ads. Just in the moment. Enjoy.

I remember the good old days when "syndicate" meant "the mob." Oh wait. These are the good old days!

One of the blogs that I read, now has google ads in the rss feeds. I think they are an early beta test of this.
