Forbes on RSS

Forbes has a brief article about RSS feeds changing the business landscape.

Some inaccuracies in the article:

“Instead of searching for information, you get RSS to push it to you.” RSS is a pull technology, not push. A user requests the data and is sent a response.

“ is now monitoring more than 5 million RSS-enabled blogs.” Technorati claims to watch over 5.2 million weblogs, but Technorati builds its database primarily by parsing HTML. Technorati is not a RSS-based searcher as the article claims.
