News.Com report on Reuters' support of RSS. I like this report because it focuses on what people are doing with RSS, not the brain-dead simple technology behind it.

It's the totally not-evil thing to do.
Kevin Werbach: "And frankly, the attendees are just as impressive." I'll probably never get invited to Supernova, but Kevin I wholly agree, so why not have a page that lists all the participants.

Betsy Devine did an experiment to see if Gmail only looks at the first paragraph in an email to figure out what ads to display. It appears her theory is correct. She writes about flowers, and the ads are about flowers. At first I couldn't figure out what she was talking about.
Halley's Comment, a Blogger site, now has comments.
Scott Rosenberg: "Bush and his men keep parroting the line about torture chambers even as the scandal of American-sponsored torture in Saddam's notorious old prison was grabbing headlines worldwide."
NPR's Juan Williams interviews US Secretary of State Colin Powell about the prisoner abuse scandal. "This is not over yet."
Nicholas Carr: "In public, industry CEOs may continue to exercise their Peter Pan complexes, pretending that the IT business will never grow up. But behind the scenes they're dismantling Neverland piece by piece."
Phil Ringnalda: "It's time for the users of syndicated XML feeds to stand up and be heard."
