Help Understanding RSS Feeds

In a recent edition of his online newsletter, Dick Eastman published an article to help his readers understand the concept of RSS feeds...this simply describes the way information gets to people: web servers “feed” their information to those who ask for it. That means that in some cases, sites that you frequently visit to see updated information (such as Blogs, or podcasts) may be able to "push" their updates to you, rather than you going to the site to "pull" the updates yourself.

Dick's explanation is an easy one to follow, and complements such discussions that have occurred in some of our classes.
