A Rose By Another Name?
RSS is the web, or rather, information on the internet. Blogs are also known around the world by an ancient term - "websites!" I believe users refer to RSS information as "newsfeeds". - Gary ;o)

The ability to subscribe to blogs and other websites via simple syndication software is a very big deal, writes Scott Rosenberg (worth clicking thru the ad): "Along with blogs, RSS fulfills the Internet visionaries' prediction that we'd all find a set of 'human filters' to help us navigate the new information seas."

My blog software, Radio, has a built-in aggregator. It gets more useful almost every day, as more sites push their content out via RSS.

But Rosenberg says syndication needs a better name. Just as "HTML" is not as alluring or explanatory as "the Web," RSS demands a slick moniker.

There are actually two things that could be named here -- the pool of cherry-picked information made available by syndication (analogous to "the Web") and the act of dipping into this pool (analogous to "surfing the Web.")

Mining for gold? Skimming the cream? Distilling the essence?

Hmm. This is going to take some thought.
