Oh my! Bill Gates discovers RSS

Oh my! Bill Gates discovers RSS.
The Microsoft boss told 100 CEOs at the company’s annual CEO Summit that the conflict between centralization vs. individual user empowerment was shifting to user empowerment.

Gates also extolled the productivity benefits that can be derived from user-empowering technologies such as blogging, RSS, collaboration software and online communities that are integrated into Web sites.

Gates called blogging and the RSS Web content syndication service a “very interesting phenomenon.” He suggested that by using RSS as notification system, customers can “get the information you want when you want it.”

The important thing here isn’t what he said, it’s who he said it to. These are topline folks in the business world, and all I can say is get ready for the RSS floodgates to open.
