What is RSS?
http://www.xml.com/pub/a/2002/12/18/dive-into-xml.html
for a two page article. You can also go to wikipedia at:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RSS_%28protocol%29

Other feeds to make it easier to syndicate content.
Atom feeds at http://www.atomenabled.org/ and
http://www.intertwingly.net/wiki/pie/FrontPage

some feedreaders to read text RSS feeds are:

Thunderbird -- http://www.mozilla.org/projects/thunderbird/
It is a mail client like Outlook Express. I don't get my mail this way because there is no way to transfer your mail, like in the Earthlink mail client where you can export out your mail in a .dat file (makes backing up your mail so much easier). Thunderbird, however, is a great RSS reader for text because it reads both RSS and Atom feeds.

For a list of feed readers to only read text is http://blogspace.com/rss/readers

To read feeds with mp3 enclosures, you can use:
Ipodder found at http://www.ipodder.org/directory/4/ipodderSoftware
Doppler 1.1.1.found at
http://www.dopplerradio.net/doppler/log.pma/viewentry?openpage&id=2
Doppler 2.0 found at
http://www.dopplerradio.net/doppler/log.pma/Home?OpenPage&D=&C=Download
Readers for the Mac xpodder found at http://sourceforge.net/search/
I also think iTunes can do this, but I'm not sure on this one as I use a Windows machine.
If anyone knows for sure, you can either post in the comments section of this blog or you
can email me at podcastbard@yahoo.com .

Poet's notebook
found at http://www.goodquotes.com/

" Look up for inspiration, down for concentration but don’t look side to side for information".

"When they put unknown at the end of a quote, that means they probably don't no how to spell anonymous" -unknown

"War does not determine who is right, war determine who is left."

"43% of all statistics are worthless."

"A bird in the hand is safer than one overhead."
