RSS and syndication offer exciting new ways for organisations to manage information, communicate internally, and to reach out to their customers and stakeholders. Are you ready for this? A lot of product names are springing up in this space, but to make a great decision about what can happen in your organisation you need to understand the technology, its potential and challenges.

About Ben Barren

Ben Barren has spent the last 11+ years in hands-on business roles helping establish leaders such as ninemsn’s Carpoint business, Virtual Communities online division, and Sensis Search’ Media Smart advertising unit.

In 2005 he co-founded his own venture, Feedcorp Pty Ltd, which in May 06 launches its first business – gnoos.com.au. Gnoos will be the first Australian search engine (using RSS) which allows consumers to find out what bloggers and media are talking about locally and globally.
