RSS - Really Something Special?

VentureBlog: RSS - Really Something Special?: "It is hard to travel Silicon Valley these days without hearing the term RSS. People who don't even know what the term means want to invest in it, create companies around it, or add it to their products. (VentureBlog's David Hornik correctly predicted the rise of RSS over a year ago). AskJeeves just purchased Bloglines this week, spurring more interest in the space.

The core concept isn't new. Push technology was the hot trend of the mid 90's, spawning PointCast, Marimba and a host of others. What's changed is the wide adoption of RSS as a standard, enabling an explosion of new products and services."
