Syndication feeds using formats such as RSS and Atom allow users to aggregate and manipulate information from many sources. They are a staple of the Weblog world and are increasingly conquering Web content. But is there more to syndication than reading 300 blogs at once?

Is syndication a shortcut to the Semantic Web, the vision of adding rich structure to the mass of information online?
