A challenge faced by us all today is that we are a more transient society both in that we tend to change our jobs more frequently while as consumers we also are changing our preferences more easily. This double effect makes it more difficult for us to stay connected with people in our personal circle of acquaintances even with the advances made by the use of technology. Through no fault of ourselves or our contacts we simply lose some of the information which connects us - a phone number, email or regular mailing address - and then we lose contact. How often have we said "I wonder where John Smith is today?"

RSS (Real Simple Syndication) is technology that allows certain programs called RSS readers to download new content from an RSS feed to your computer. RSS feeds are often found on blogs or forums and contain the latest posts to that blog or forum. An RSS feed can also be found on news sites and contains the latest articles found on that site. Just like an email program such as Microsoft Outlook saves you time by checking for new mail for you and downloading it so that you can view it, the RSS reader checks for updates for you and as soon as it sees an update, it will download it to your computer and can notify you by a popup message or dialog, etc.
