RSS: Really Simple Syndication
The Center for Technology in Government now provides an RSS (Really Simple Syndication) feed for its home page, press releases, Web News emails, new publication alerts, new project alerts, and current project updates. RSS feeds keep you updated on the topics that interest you by delivering news of those updates directly to you — when they happen.

What Is RSS?

RSS provides a convenient way to monitor information from a variety of sources, including news stories, updates to a Web site, or important bulletins. By watching this RSS feed, you can quickly and easily see whenever an update has occurred.

Most people take advantage of some form of software (typically called "readers") to read and monitor RSS feeds. These RSS readers work within your Web browser, email software, or desktop; and some are restricted to specific browsers or email. Different readers will also retrieve and deliver the RSS updates in different ways. Therefore, it's important that you "shop wisely" to find the RSS reader that works best for you. There are many different RSS readers available, but here are a selected few that we’ve tested and that you may find useful:
  • RssReader. Runs under Windows. Notifies of news updates via icon in system tray. Opens original news web page in RssReader browser or default browser window.
