RSS Power [1].

RSS Power.

Tim Bray has been writing about RSS [1 2 3]. He gives some examples about how RSS can be leveraged for banking, sales tracking and weather, and also discusses the potential pitfalls.

I have been writing for some time about how RSS could be a disruptive innovation going beyond blogs, with a specific focus on enterprise events. (See my post on Information Refinery from last July.) Thats where the focus should be. In fact, for all practical purposes, the actual weblog pages are useless for me – I only need the RSS to flow into my Info Aggregator. I don’t need to access the blog pages to read what people are writing. The RSS ecosystem is going to be more important than the blogging ecosystem. Blogs will become by-products of the RSS ecosystem. Wait a while and we will make some RSS magic happen!
