RSS Syndication of Medical Content

At MedBiquitous 2005 listening to Howard Tanzman from the American College of Surgeons talk about how they are using RSS in a professional society.

MedScape
offers a lot of RSS feeds. There are a lot of health weblogs as well.

Allan Bell from HighWire Press follows with a brief look at aggregation in special applications, web services and browsers. Allan shows NetNewsWire as an example of a good aggregator.

After I responded to a question about if there are ways to deliver RSS to an email inbox (yes you can both get and create RSS feeds via email), a man in front of me asks if there are aggregators for cell phones and PDAs. Yes, there are for both. Yahoo! has feeds for any WAP 2.0 cell phone browser and there's quite a collection of RSS readers for both PocketPC and Palm.
