RSS Book

I just finished reading the O’Reilly RSS book by Ben Hammersley. Its a decent book. Published in March of this year, so its pretty up to date. I have to admit its got me excited about RSS modules.

As I mentioned before, who wants to read this?

I do have an interesting application. I want to sell stuff. I want people to read my forsale items via my RSS feed. Why? Because I want Google and all the other search engines to help me disseminate my goods. I don’t want to pay Ebay 2% and then pay another 2.5% to Paypal (oh wait, thats ebay too, isn’t it?). Why can’t we all just share this info via RSS? Indexers and robots of the world can parse it out and become our delivery vehicle.
