The RSS Blog

News and commentary from the RSS and OPML community.

Dan Sandler: USM, the Universal Subscription Mechanism, is a pretty simple idea that aims to patch a hole in the current RSS/Atom subscription scenario. [cut] The alternatives are: (1) the feed:// URI scheme (a bastardization of the URI specification and usage model) and (2) what Dave Winer calls the solution to the Yahoo problem, namely a central web site which manages all your client-side subscription preferences for you (patently absurd.)

Randy: Dan makes a great case for USM. A must read.
