RSS: The New Killer App for Educators

After watching Lee LeFevers video on RSS feeds, I was excited to take on the task of setting up my bloglines account. What an amazing feature to be able to subscribe to a site in one click and have that blog appear on my bloglines account! I love this quick and efficient method of getting relevant information all in one place!
One interesting post that I found was from Cool Cat Teacher. The title of the post was "What is the Deal with this Ning thing?" The author was discussing Ning's decision to downsize and begin charging for their normally free resources. Her perspective was interesting. She mentioned that it was their company and they owe it to their investors to be profitable, but she fears educators will not be given an option to pay to save what they have already posted on the free educational sites.
