RSS vs Atom, condensed

Jeremy Zawodny:

Since everyone’s jumping up and down about the Atom vs. RSS (or “Google vs. RSS” if that’s your paranoia) debate, it’s probably worth pointing out that My Yahoo’s RSS module also groks Atom. It was added last night. It took about a half hour.

To borrow a phrase, it’s just data.

This is RSS vs Atom, condensed by Simon Willison, posted on 12th February 2004.
