Wow, today is a convergence day of holidays! Not only do we have May Day, [w:International Workers’ Day], and [w:Loyalty Day], but now there’s also RSS Day! [w:RSS] (aka “rich site summary”) is the little XML file that could; that is, RSS can help librarians and readers in general collect and read the stuff in which they’re interested. See the video below for a really good, straighforward description of RSS. And don’t forget to register for the GODORT preconference at ALA Annual ’08 entitled, Docs2.0: emerging web technologies for the government documents community. FGI will be there with Jim Jacobs presenting about RSS and James Jacobs moderating and presenting about del.icio.us.
