Interesting RSS hosting service that allows you to create RSS feeds (and to allow you to require password assess for private RSS feeds) and subscribe to hosted RSS feeds. There's a lot here; you have to create an account and look around to explore. Some of the tech is irksome: the site doesn't display properly on the Firebird browser, the password constraints mean that I will forget my password, and it's constantly opening new windows. But there is some interesting stuff for those who dig, including SOAP access and a nifty way of converting a channel into a Microsoft Smart Tag. Too bad they'll have to change their branding; I can't imagine that the creators of Myst (the famous computer game) will allow them to continue the the MyST wordmark.
