Dickerson: "RSS is simpler and easier"

Chad Dickerson: "RSS is simple to produce in any development environment, the cost of producing RSS content is negligible in most cases, and itís widely understood as a standard. There are a number of feature-rich but relatively complex XML specs and protocols (for example, ICE and NewsML) that handle content syndication of all types, but most of the time InfoWorld only needs to syndicate very simple information with our partners. ICE and NewsML will work, but RSS is simpler and easier, so we use RSS whenever we can and try to limit the complexity."
