Feeding Frenzy
Or, what are those little orange XML buttons?

Perhaps you've seen those little orange buttons which seem to be cropping up all over the Web. Usually they're labelled "XML" and they often link to inscrutable computer code. What's it all about? This informal talk will explain the mystery behind the little orange button -- the syndicated content feed. We'll discuss the two popular formats (RSS and Atom) and how you can use feeds in a news aggregator to keep up-to-date with your favorite websites.
