I’ve been doing some more reading up on RSS — turns out it’s not controlled by UserLand, but rather a standard in the works for content syndication using XML. Originally developed by UserLand and Netscape in the late 90s (more on the history and other interesting facts are found on the 0.91 spec). The more I read, the more I like. Having a standard for syndicating web pages makes sense to me — although taking full advantage of it might not happen for a while.

Anyhow, I was playing around with generating an RSS feed with Pubish Jr. and it should be pretty darn simple.
