Cool App

Those of you who are long time readers probably know I am a big fan of RSS (and I am grateful to those of you who provide a feed of your blog, especially in full readable format like Michael) I wish I had the time to devote to learning more about it, and applying it more productively.

Fortunately, Ben Hammersly does...and has. Now you can plug in your FedEx tracking number - and get an RSS feed of your shipment's progress - Cool! This is an ideal application of the tool.

It amazes me how few companies are taking advantage of this technology, and I'm glad there are people like Ben to do it for them. RSS is a system that will be a breakout when people find ways to monetize it - FedEx could have done it.....

Lately I've been getting liberals leaving be comments like, "Yuor just aRepbilcan MORON". If I could set those up as a separate RSS feed, I'd do it. :P
