To all of you who always wonder what I'm talking about when I talk about RSS, there's a pretty darned good article by a layman (non-technical) that explains why RSS rules.

Go to the article; you'll need to get a free day pass from Salon by watching an advertisement.

The whole concept of syndication is just coming about; in the future, you won't even need to visit the website to see if they've updated; you can just view one site and it'll keep all your sites in one place.

I currently keep track of about 20 different websites from just one single website (Bloglines). It means that instead of visiting 20 different bookmarks, I visit one page, and all new content is up there!

Here is a list of newsreader apps and sites:
