Mark blogs RSS

6th September 2002

There’s enough RSS discussion floating about right now to make one’s head spin. Thank Goodness then for Mark Pilgrim, who yesterday posted an excellent explanation of RSS 2.0, and today followed it up with both a hugely informative History of the RSS Fork and a concise summary of the cases for deprecating some of the existing RSS 0.94 elements in the upgrade to RSS 2.0, which seems to be one of the biggest talking points in the RSS community at the moment. I can’t say I’ve quite figured RSS out yet but thanks to Mark’s tireless commentary I fell a lot more informed than I was yesterday morning.
