RSS Thoughts

I am not quite sure I understand why Roberdan has posted this very basic explanation of what an RSS feed is.
Probably to start educating the masses, and preparing that amount of business people to WHAT RSS is…. preparing them to actually use the format when (soon) it will finally be mainstream with Office 12 and IE7…. to this regard Scoble says “[…]don’t underestimate the effect of Outlook 12’s support of RSS here. It’ll bring millions of new businesspeople into the RSS world. This is HUGE.[…]”.
And he’s right of course. I keep forgetting RSS is not in the mainstream yet. “My” idea of what is mainstream is mostly polluted by my geeky visions…

Invece per fortuna lo SharePoint “futuro” che uscira’, avra’ questa possibilita’ nativamente:
