Now you can set up your own website absolutely free in a matter of minutes with your own text, audio, video, etc. Not only that, you no longer have to go "Google it" (aka search) for the newest story or information on a given subject. All you have to do is "subscribe" to a feed. Think of a feed as an intelligent Hyperlink on steroids. It send you new information when someone publishes it.
