The Year of RSS?

A slew of articles recently about RSS’s growing popularity:

Jon Udell in Infoworld points to an article about using RSS for corporate communications (including some excellent commentary, including the role of blogging in raising awareness about data that flows through RSS).

Jenny the Shifted Librarian writes about turning on the crowd at the Government Information Locator Service conference by discussing RSS’s role in making structured data of all kinds available. Her co-presenter, Ray Matthews, won an award from the CIO of Utah for his work in RSS advocacy.

Hmm. Add this to Don Box and the GotDotNet bloggers going through a public RSS lovefest, MSDN adding RSS support… it’s feeling like the Year of RSS, folks.
