Dave Winer on CNET's new RSS reader

Dave Winer writes about CNET's new RSS reader.

One of the cool things he mentions is that by having an RSS reader, CNET can get the RSS feeds from rival tech sites and display them on its site. Readers then visit CNET to read news from other sites. Brilliant.

This is legal of course, but I'm sure the rival sites will have a thing or two to say about it. We can expect a lot of controversy over this in the upcoming months. I'm looking forward to it :-)

Update: Fixed the broken URL
