According to a recent article on Scientific American.com, RSS (Real Simple Syndication) is used by only about 2% of the online community. That is a sobering thought.
RSS is probably the single most significant tool we can use as we construct our Personal Learning Environment (PLE) in an attempt to take control of our own learning. There is nothing else out there that allows us to read and monitor information as easily and efficiently as does RSS.
Just think what the other 98% are missing.
