A rss is a rss is a rss...

Signal vs. Noise asked readers to define RSS in ten words or less. (For the uninformed, an rss feed is what you get when you right-click that orange "xml" button to the left of here, choose "copy shortcut" then paste it into your favorite news aggregator, such as NewzCrawler).

My favorites:

* Remember Pointcast? Kinda like that, only actually useful
* If the WSJ redesigned the WWW, it'd look like RSS

But the Best real definition, I think, is: "Sends news you want to you, no email, no spam" from Stephan Downes.
