Arkansas Has RSS

RSS in Government: Arkansas Government eNewsroom: This is encouraging.

Arkansas has joined the growing number of states syndicating agency produced headlines for its citizenry using RSS. The Arkansas Government eNewsRoom is a news portal featuring a RSS 0.91 feed that indexes news releases in PDF format.

I saw a bit the other day (don’t remember where) that said the biggest disappointment with RSS so far is that people are just using it in aggregators — they’re not using RSS to actually syndicate content to other sites. But when I see things like this, that appear to be targeted at the “real” media, I think that maybe that trend is changing.
