Microsoft RSS cat out of the bag
By Charlene Li
Microsoft will be making an announcement at Gnomedex on Friday about how they will integrate RSS into their products. I've been briefed and am under embargo until after their speech Friday morning. But Dave Winer spilled the beans. And Robert Scoble gives a few more hints that the announcement goes beyond just the browser. I thought you'd like to know so that you can follow the story -- the best way to do this is to watch
the IE blog Channel 9.
One of the things Dave points out in his post is the realization that RSS is more than just about news. As you know, I've been working on a report about non-blog uses of RSS for marketers (it's in the final stages, really!) and as part of the research, had a wide-ranging discussion with Dean Hachamovitch, GM of Microsoft's Internet Explorer team. I'll have more details on what the announcement means Friday afternoon.
