Not Sure Why I’m Surprised But I Am

While I’m waiting to talk about big stuff, here’s an observation that hit me between the eyes today:

Some people still don’t get that RSS is unstoppable.  RSS will be — is — everywhere.

In fact, I’ll go out on a limb and say that RSS will have the same kind of impact as SMTP and HTTP.

Now, no one except techies really care about protocols.  But, everyone cares about what they enable:

     SMTP = email

     HTTP = the web

     RSS = how the entire world will share information

Normally I’d say it’s only a matter of time — but it’s already happening. You don’t have to look any farther than your favorite blog or news site.
