Is it just me or has RSS been a recurring topic for the last few days? Not that I'm complaining, I love RSS, but it's been an oddly popular topic.

It leaves me pondering whether publishers are beginning to consider it was a superior format for mass consumption that has been ignored at their own peril. There's just too much content out there and fatigue can quickly set in when hunting for suitable viewing material.

I believe Youtube generates more ad revenue when it's viewed directly on the site, instead of embedded in another website (Facebook). Plus producers know their content gets fairly prioritized by the end user when it's consumed through RSS.
