What is RSS?

RSS stands for Real Simple Syndication (or Rich Site Summary). RSS provides a way for Web sites to let people receive summaries of new content that has been posted. This is called an RSS feed and is posted online as a text file in a format called XML. You might start to notice that a lot of Web sites have small, orange rectangles on them that say either XML or RSS. This is a link to that site's RSS feed.

Subscribing to a feed allows you to receive text updates from that Web site. If you just click the link or open it in a Web browser, it might just look like jumbled text. However, there are special types of software applications called news aggregators that can read the RSS feed and display the summary for the user. People can subscribe to feeds from their favorite Web sites, so that the most current information is pushed to them.

July 5–7, 2006

Those who've attended NECC in the past will notice a change from our usual program:
  • The main conference days will be Wednesday–Friday.
  • Workshops will be held Wednesday–Friday, both days and evenings. A limited number of workshops may be held preconference.
  • The Opening Reception is on the 4th of July! It'll be held at the San Diego Convention Center, a perfect location for viewing numerous fireworks displays over the water — be sure to bring the whole family!
Please keep this schedule in mind as you make your travel and hotel arrangements!
