RSS ("Really Simple Syndication") is a standard web tool that helps you get notified of new website content of interest to YOU. It's very simple to use and allows you to choose what sorts of information you want us to tell you about. It means you don't have to search our site to see if there's something new of interest, we'll tell you about it when it happens.
Typically you will see the icon indicating there's RSS information that you can subscribe to. When you click on it, your browser (Fireforx, IE, Safari, ...) will give you a choice of where and how you would like to access it. You will need an RSS reader or aggregator, which you may already have. If not, you choose one, they're free and easy to use -- popular ones include GOOGLE and My Yahoo. There are many others.
Currently Undercurrent offers these RSS feeds:
We plan to add more later, especially if you find this service useful -- let us know what you'd like (contact Webmaster)
Here's a short video on what RSS is and how to use it (thanks to CommonCraft):
As an example, how I use it: There are lots of ways to use RSS, so here's an example to give you the flavor of one way to use this remarkable tool. I have set up iGoogle as my home page -- it appears when I open my browser (Firefox, IE, Safari). I have tailored this page to contain RSS feeds from a number of newspapers and other "hard" news sources. But also there's RSS feeds for financial news, a couple comic strips, local weather info, a few hobbies, and the above Undercurrent feeds. So now anytime I open my browser all this info appears on one page and I can easily click a link to read more of any of it -- I don't need to go to 30 different website to see if there's something of interest. And I can add/remove RSS feeds whenever I want, as well as rearrange how they appear. -- DSE
