Why use RSS to receive your chess moves?

RSS is a really good way to keep up-to-date with things such as blogs. So to me it seemed like a really natural thing to be able to subscribe to chess games in the same way.

One other key advantage of RSS is that it is machine readable. You can use an RSS feed with another program or website to do more than was previously possible.

For example, before I added email notification you could combine your RSS feed with RssFwd to get your moves sent to you by email. In fact you can still do this, but there's no longer an urgent need to.

In a similar way you could use the RSS feed from chrss to receive chess moves via SMS or Twitter.

You can use Wigitize to create an RSS widget for your blog (to complement the existing widgets).

With something like Yahoo! Pipes (a web mash-up tool) you can combine the RSS feed in all sorts of ways.

As RSS is a machine readable format it could be used for all manner of purposes.
