CNN & RSS

by Steve Mallett

I sit here pondering what CNN.com's server(s) load is like as I hit reload every five minutes.

On the front page (link withheld for mercy's sake), there is the basic equivalent of a webblog. In this case it's a warblog.

Lots of sites don't provide rss feeds becuase they're trying to serve ads or whatnot, but CNN seems a natural for rss feeds since they're trying to be 'the' source for news and don't have ads except for advertising themselves. Maybe it's the Pics of Paula Zahn they want people to see?

Off the beaten track rss feeds:
