We would like to thank the local libraries, schools, and universities for recommending students
to visit us when doing research on any of our information topics.
One of the main problems with the Internet these days is the
fact that there is so much information out there; it can be quite
hard to find the particular knowledge that you're looking for. It
can often feel like you're surfing waves of thick chocolate fudge
sauce and your honeycomb board has a crack that's getting wider
by the second. Over stimulus is the issue here; you wanted to
read opinions from music enthusiasts about music, and every
second blog article had to do with new punk hairdo trends and
which band has the coolest tattoos. How can we find only the
content we're looking for without getting bogged down in
miscellaneous information that erodes both time and patience?
The answer is in context. There's now a way to sift
through the cacophony of babble and wisdom to find exactly what
you're looking for. Instead of having to join clubs and
organizations and receive their newsletters via email at their
convenience you can now have control over what you receive.
Having to search through millions of blogs to find the few you
like has now become an obsolete task. The new system is called an
RSS Reader: 'Rich site summary' or 'really simple syndication'
are the common definitions of this software. The process begins
by signing up to receive automatic updates from blogs and other
Web sites that distribute summaries of their latest postings to
your reader. You then find which ones you like and delete the
rest. You can keep adding new sites until you have literally
hundreds of informative connections in your areas of specific
interest. Another great aspect of the RSS Reader program
is the fact that you can put in key words of interest and the
computer will surf the Web for you and add new blogs and web
sites to your list, rating them according to the terms you have
selected. You then scan over these and add the ones you feel are
relevant, deleting the detritus. Eventually you will have an
email-style formatted file where you can search through all your
favorite writers, news, and topics' latest information. Then you
also have functions such as 'comment' so you can automatically
share your input with your fellow humans. Or, you can reply to
the 'messages' and actually communicate with the producers of the
ideas. This will really help to decentralize the
information sharing processes of the current top-down mass
communication systems like the media. We can hear multiple
opinions on an issue and give our own views, instead of being
told one story that is heavily affected by the company's personal
perspective of the situation.
So, you can see this has the potential for something quite big. Less time wasted, finding all the knowledge you're looking for, and sharing your opinion and meeting others similar to yourself has never been so easy. The RSS Reader is a knife cutting away all the useless packaging, revealing the true content of the gift of the Internet.
