What is this fancy RSS thing
An RSS feed
is a push-type system used for Blogs/News, so you do not need to
constantly come back to the homepage to check on the latest event,
the program will tell you. A nice introduction to this can be found at
To read a feed, either use your browser (eg. you can add .xml bookmarks
to Firefox, Safari, IE).
Even more fun is to read articles by subscribing to a RSS feed using a dedicated program
(eg. Thunderbird, Firefox extension,
MACOSX eg. NetNewsWire Lite) that treats RSS more like incoming email.
Most journals have launched RSS feeds,
including Physical Review.
