RSS

RSS is Really Simple Syndication, and represents a web technology that enables easy dissemination of information to users.  RSS sort of brings the internet to you.  Let's say you wanted to keep track of news articles from 10 different websites.  Before the creation of RSS, you would need to go and visit 10 different websites.  Now, with RSS, you have a single news reader program that aggregates all of your "RSS feeds" or RSS sites and pulls the live information to you.  So, you open your RSS reader and it pulls the news from your 10 different websites to you.
