Coffee Break Training: Learn How to Manage your Information by Harnessing the Power of Really Simple Syndication (RSS)   [open pdf - 286KB]

"You've no doubt heard of RSS by now. You've probably seen those funny orange icons on Web sites? Maybe you've heard coworkers talk about it, but still have no idea yourself what RSS is? Have no fear, there are a lot of other people who haven't either, but this is changing. RSS is not only transforming the way news, media, and Web site owners share information, but it's also rapidly changing the way we all consume it. RSS allows us to get updates to the content of RSS-enabled Web sites without having to visit these sites repeatedly ourselves. Instead, information from such Web sites (typically the title and a description) is piped to us in a process known as really simply syndication."
