What is RSS?

Mark Pilgrim writes for XML.com: “It’s not just for news. Pretty much anything that can be broken down into discrete items can be syndicated via RSS: the ‘recent changes’ page of a wiki, a changelog of CVS checkins, even the revision history of a book. Once information about each item is in RSS format, an RSS-aware program can check the feed for changes and react to the changes in an appropriate way.”
