RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication. Probably. It might stand for Rich Site Summary. But whatever. You don’t really need to know what it means. All you need to know is that RSS makes your life easier.
Howzat? Well, RSS lets you subscribe to an online information source, like a [[blog create]], or a [[podcast create]], or a news headlines site, or… or anything that gets updated regularly. This lets you use a piece of software called an [[aggregator create]] (or [[feed reader create]]) to view these news sources all at once, without visiting dozens of different websites.
Feed readers make your information consumption faster and more efficient.
