Rise of blogs spawned RSS Aggregators

Data Memo of Pew / Internet - The state of blogging: "The rise of blogs has also spawned a new distribution mechanism for news and information from web sites that are regularly update their content. An RSS aggregator gathers material from Web sites and blogs you tell it to scan and it brings new information from those sites to you. RSS aggregators are usually downloaded and installed on users’ computers and then are programmed to “subscribe” to the RSS feeds from blogs, news Web sites, and other content-rich sites." (p. 3)
