RSS: Are we at the tipping point?

Media Post: “Global content provider Factiva, a joint subsidiary of Dow Jones and the Reuters Group, will deliver a series of free really simple syndication feeds that relate to the U.S. Presidential election, the company said Monday. The feeds cover election-related topics including jobs, the economy, health care, the war in Iraq, and budget and taxes. ”
Release goes on to say the sources will not be Factiva’s 9,000 exclusive news sources –they will be 4,000 blogs and Web sites covering the Presidential election.
1) Factiva is gong to redistribute other people’s work–like bloggers–hopefully, with permission.
2) They didn’t ask their partners for content (yet)
3) They think there is a market
4) The market is right now
