I just made my first RSS feed :-)

I just made my first RSS feed for the site at work, and it didn't take long at all. What does that mean in plain English? You know how most websites have some sort of a news feed, either a page listing news items which you can read more, or maybe a weblog like this. Anyway, an RSS feed is a special way of presenting that news so that modern web browsers (Firefox, Safari, Opera) and stand-alone programs can read it, making it even easier to keep up-to-date with your favorite news. Furthermore there are marketing aspects whereby other sites can show your news on their site, syndicating it as it were. It is this last aspect that I plan on pushing at work, once I get some time to do some planning on it.
