To consume the D.C. Bar RSS feed, use…
- What is RSS?
- RSS (Really Simple Syndication) is a way to receive D.C. Bar news
and event announcements. Using an RSS aggregator such as Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, etc., you “consume”
the feed’s content by specifying the address above as the feed
What’s an RSS aggregator?
- An RSS aggregator is software you install on your computer to consume
RSS feeds. Current versions of web browsers likely have this ability already built in. For a more robust option, consider one of the commercial products available exclusively for consuming RSS feeds by submitting “RSS Aggregators”
to your favorite search engine.
What information is in the feed?
- The D.C. Bar’s feed includes important Bar announcements and event information
for all events fourteen days into the future.
What does RSS do for me?
- RSS saves you time. Rather than to come to the Bar’s web site
searching for important announcements, that information comes to you.
- Why is RSS better than email?
- Even legitimate email gets caught in spam filters. RSS isn’t email so is unaffected by this. You’re sure to receive each and every news and event listed in the feed. It is also quicker and easier to filter RSS items than it is email to only that information which is of interest to you.
