Thanks to the wondrous wonder that is RSS, I can keep up to date with the world of blogging (and world news) all from one place. Lucky me. While I’ll expound on RSS and syndication in general at a later date, I did want to add my “amen” to this:
“Connecting people to knowledge is the entire point of programming as far as I’m concerned, and so far there’s been no better medium for that than the Internet.” (From Troutgirls weblog)
Amen, amen and thrice amen. That’s what it’s about for me, too. Those three little words – people, connecting and knowledge. Whether that knowledge is someone elses opinion, statistics, news, jokes, technical information or whatever, it’s still knowledge. And people like to gain knowledge – whether it’s just for information, curiosity, plain noseyness or whatever, people like knowledge. What an exciting world we live in. We just need to share the good bits more, and reduce the bad bits.
