December 11, 2004. The CCNMTL website now offers announcements, press releases, and events information via Really Simple Syndication (RSS). RSS is an XML-based format that syndicates content for use in news readers and Web logs, and is now being adopted by browsers like Firefox as a built-in feature. Other stand-alone RSS readers compile news from different sources to allow readers to access updates from a variety of sources easily. Future versions of Safari will also offer built-in RSS capabilities.

To subscribe to CCNMTL's RSS feed, point your RSS reader to http://ccnmtl.columbia.edu/web/content_ssi_drop/news/index.xml. In Firefox 1.0, a subscription button is visible at the bottom right of the browser window.
