I had no idea that there was such a day until I saw this Common Craft post in my Google Reader today. In honor of the day, here are some helpful resources:
Apparently, May 1st is RSS Awareness Day! I had no idea such a day existed, but it has it’s own site at RSSday.org . Thanks to the nice folks at dailyblogtips.com for making our RSS in Plain English video part of the site – and day for that matter.
I agree that RSS is one of those special technologies. It has the potential to positively impact virtually every Internet user at no cost. A big problem is awareness – it’s hard for people to see how it could impact them until they give it a try. Hopefully we’ve been able to turn some people on – but there are still about 94% of Internet users that haven’t seen the light. The challenge continues.
