I couldn’t agree more about RSS

Jackob Nielsen made a statement about RSS today in the Wall Street Journal which I 100% agree with.

People who are in the field often use the term 'RSS' [Really Simple Syndication] to refer to 'news feeds' because that's the name of the technology. But in one of our studies, 82% of those we surveyed did not know what RSS meant.

So one of the real strong recommendations is to stop calling it 'RSS' and start calling it 'news feeds,' because that explains what it does.
