|What's this RSS thing?|
|RSS stands for "Really Simple Syndication".
It's a technology that allows us to deliver news to you, 24x7, which
you read when you want to. Unlike a newsletter sent to
you by email, and which you can't refuse (unless you unsubscribe to
the mailing list), RSS is an on-demand service.
The news stories are published to this website, and you can check back here whenever you like to read them, much like the service from the BNSW and ABF websites. However, you also have the option of installing something called "News Aggregation" software on your own computer, which will generate an alert when a new story is published here. No new stories = no need to check the website. That saves you time. RSS makes it possible for people to keep up with their favourite web sites in an automated manner that's easier than checking them manually.
For those of you who've been around the internet for a while, it's like a combination of the old Usenet "Newsgroups" concept and the idea of being able to subscribe to a particular website to receive notice of updates. However, RSS is rapidly becoming the standard for disseminating e-news, with millions of feeds now available worldwide covering just about any area of interest you can imagine.
