i noticed that there are now 2 on the WCBB board and more on the MBB and FB boards. they seem to be articles - one was an entire article in the thread - why is that not on the regular board? and what sort of stuff should be on the news feed area? just curious. thanks!!

An RSS feed is a kind of standard that allows various formats to read an article published on the web. One of the features is that you can subscribe to an RSS feed so that it automatically sends you updates as they come out. You know, "Podcasts".

John A's bloc is an RSS feed and Tom had linked it to the Women's board. I'll bet other RSS feeds will be added. So as new JA blogs come out, they will automatically be added to the News feeds on the Women's board.

I've been home sick, so I decided to play with the feed option. If I can find similar feeds for other newspaper sites, etc, I'll add them. If there is interest.
