Lisa brought up an interesting point about RSSBus - some people are confused about what it does.  Thats because it does SO MUCH.  I have some 'splaining to do.

RSSBus gives you the ability to access all of your data sources in the same way and in the same format.  The beautiful thing about this is that it opens up so many options for what you can do with the data in a small amount of time.  I like to say that RSSBus is three things:

  1. It's a feed generator.  RSSBus gives its users the ability to create RSS feeds from data sources located both behind the firewall (like databases, Quickbooks, Excel, your mail server) and out on the internet (like Google services, Yahoo services,, PayPal, etc).
  2. It's a Really Simple Service Bus.  If you don't know what a service bus is, it doesn't matter, because when I say simple - I mean simple.  Basically all this means is that using RSSBus you can exchange messages or transition data between various places (applications, data stores, web services, etc).
  3. It's a feed customization and routing tool.  We provide users with the ability to customize, mix, pipe, and mashup feeds.  Without any coding/scripting you can create, sort, search, randomize, or combine feeds.  If you want to dive deeper and do a little scripting you can customize the feeds with nearly no holds barred, and you can move data between one source and another simply by piping two feeds together.
