RSS Resources

The Fresno Bee summarizes some new uses for RSS feeds that go beyond blogs. Among the most interesting are tracking applications like Watchcow, which allows you to convert Amazon price watches into feeds that you can view in any feedreader.

Also, bloggers looking to promote their RSS feeds, there's the RSS Top 55, a list of RSS directories. The article is updated regularly (most recent update was May 25 of this year), and contains 121 blog and RSS directories (some of which are no longer active, though). However, you'll have to manually submit an entry to each directory.
