What is RSS?

RSS is a format for syndicating news and the content of news sites, including major news sites like Wired, NY Times, Washinton Post, Slashdot, etc. RSS stands for "Really Simple Syndication." RSS allows you to keep up to date with the news on your favourite web sites without having to visit them all individually. RSS sends the details straight to your news reader for you to browse through each time an update is detected.

RSS is based on XML, a widely used standard for information exchange between applications on the Internet. RSS feeds can be viewed as plain text files, but they are really designed for computer-to-computer communication. Note that RSS is just one standard for expressing feeds as XML.

The most compelling use of RSS is that it lets users read dozens of websites, all on the same page. The sites can be scanned in seconds rather than having to be laboriously loaded individually.

Usernomics now offers a free RSS feed for news about usability and ergonomics. Use this together with either a web based RSS feed reader, or a Desktop RSS feed reader to keep up to date on the news, throughout the day, every day.

How do I setup the "Ergonomics In The News" RSS feed?

You will either need to download and install a Desktop RSS feed reader program or use one of the web based RSS feed readers. This is very simple to do and most of them are free - it is very similar to reading newsgroups in Outlook Express. We have listed some of the most popular programs below. Once you have either installed or subscribed to a news reader, simply add our RSS feed URL into the appropriate "add feed" section. It will then collect and display the latest headlines.
