In Enthusiasts Call Web Feed Next Big Thing, Frank Bajak (an AP Technology Editor) does a good job of briefly explaining what RSS, who's using it, and why it's important.
The technology behind them is called RSS and I rely on it daily to consult The New York Times, the BBC, CNET News, Slashdot and a few dozen other Web sites that employ RSS to make the very latest news stories or bits of commentary available for the plucking.
Of course I'm biased. In addition to Robert Scoble, Dave Winer, and Anil Dash, I got a quote. He pulled it from my 2004 Predictions post in which I talked about RSS really taking off this year. I guess he thought it was a good way to summarize his piece.
