One of the many wonderful things about RSS feeds is that they are blissfully devoid of advertising. That may not be the case much longer. According to Wired News, “a new pilot program from FeedBurner embeds ads in the feeds of a number of the company’s content-publishing partners.” This is probably the begining of the end of our blissful existence. How could we be so foolish to think that advertisers would allow us to avoid visiting ad-laden sites by having the content syndicated? Between this and the legislation in Congress forbidding people from skipping advertisements in movies, I’m waiting for the day when there are armed guards in every home making sure we get our daily dose of commercials and ads.
