'Radical' concept in online listings

Edgeio uses tagging, RSS to pull listings from all over the Web

Edgeio, a new service for online classified listings, launched this week, with what some have called a “radical” concept in Web listings publishing.

Edgeio constantly monitors RSS-enabled Web sites and pulls any item tagged “listing” and publishes the listing on the edgeio Web site and network. RSS, which stands for “Really Simple Syndication,” is an XML-based protocol that allows for the automatic distribution of Internet content.
