Jason Kottke has written an interesting piece today on why we should stop calling it "syndication." I especially liked the following:

Hmm. So, people access documents written in a markup language that have been published on a Web server with a software application. If this seems familiar to you, it should. It's called Web browsing and has nothing to do with syndication. RSS readers and newsreaders are just specialized Web browsers, nascent microcontent browsers if you will.

If you're at all interested in the future, the potential, or the ramifications of RSS and Atom, I think you'll enjoy the read.
