Happy RSS Day! Wait, WTF is RSS?
There are thousands of people that read this blog via their subscription to LAist's RSS (Really Simple Syndication). But sometimes when people hear the word "RSS," their faces go blank.
RSS is a pretty sweet tool to know how to use. Basically, instead of visiting a handful of your favorites sites everyday to see what's new, you visit one site, your RSS Reader, and all your favorite sites are loaded into one clean space.
It sort of acts like e-mail, but with no spam!
And since it's RSS Day (who knew?), it's encouraged to try it out as it's kinda like kung fu, meditation and sex -- you really don't understand it until you start doing it. In any case, below is a pretty clear video on how it works.
