I do not pretend to be a futurist or a pioneer of RSS, but I’ve been following very closely the RSS and how it has evolved. From what I’ve seen so far I think I can make some predictions very well where are the RSS feeds of departure. The first prediction is pretty obvious, but I think it said. RSS is here to stay and will only become more popular. This year we have seen enough to integrate RSS into Yahoo search and it will integrate Microsoft reading RSS RSS browser into a share of the next version of Windows. Will not be long before RSS Google search appears. Gavin Baker is often quoted as being for or against this.
RSS richer content will be increasingly common. Now we have the inclusions in RSS 2.0 that are used for photos and podcasts more often. I think we will see an increase in video RSS feeds, but due to the bandwidth needed I think many inclusions will be in the form of torrents. So you heard it here first, RSS readers with integrated support for torrents. There will be more and dominant, the field is still too new. All is not lost for the other players in the RSS reader market. Agrowth see the number of readers in the form of custom widgets are small applications that run light specific task, as shown in bad weather, but in a nice graphical environment. We will see more players that have RSS feeds and translate them into graphic representations, a good example of this would be a weather widget.
The weather widget would get data from an RSS feed containing weather data and represent it in a graphical format on the screen. The real future is bright for RSS and will compliment their older and more mature cousin HTML. Now I wonder if anyone has thought about creating a series of career advice RSS feed.
