I’m seeing all sorts of RSS-based stuff these days. While I’m most interested in business applications of RSS, whether caching or database or textual related, most of what I’m seeing lately is consumer-oriented.
Many of you will have seen RSS Calendar, which is interesting, but doesn’t do what I want it to do yet. I want transparent Outlook integration for my syndicated feed, and that’s just not in the cards — yet. You can see it coming, but it’s not there yet.
Another RSS site I was shown lately is RealSimpleShopping. The idea, as it appears to me, is to turn permission-based marketing into an RSS feed. In other words, you sign up for the kind of sales & coupon feeds you want, based on your interests, and that is what you receive, whether it’s clothes, CDs, bags, or whatever.
