It’s easy to lose or turn off someone who does not consider themselves tech-saavy by using acronyms like RSS. Just what is RSS? I created a short video in 2005 with my graduate students at Wayland Baptist University in Lubbock to try and explain RSS in plain language, but I think Oprah has an even more succinct and understandable way to help people understand RSS. According to Oprah, RSS should stand for:

I love it!
