    How to best use RSS


    I publish several events calendars http://Pittsburgh.BusinessCalendar.Org

    I currently Tweet events as they are posted, but Linked in Doesn't display the Twitter RSS properly so I need to implement my own.

    I'm trying to understand what would be the best feed for me.

    1) The most recent single new event.
    2) The most recent N new events.
    3) Today's events.
    4) something else

    Thoughts, suggestions, examples welcome.

    1 and 3 have flaws: if your reader doesn't check the feed very often they could easily miss events.
    2 is the best choice.
