Amazing Adoption of RSS

www.scotsman.com showed up in my inbox via a Google News Alert about spam or Hotmail or something like that. I went over to the article and saw a XML icon at the bottom of the page. Nothing exciting about that, lots of news outlets have RSS feeds now (Yahoo, CNet, etc) but over next to the XML scarab was a link for news feeds. Checking it out it looks like The Scottsman provides not only RSS 2.0 feeds for every one of its categories, it also provides feeds for what look like searchs, JavaScript feeds and OPMLs as well! Amazing to see a news site taking the concept of feeds and embracing it so wholeheartidly.
