I think the guys on the irc backchannel at Les Blogs2 are onto something with an alternative name for RSS feeds as ARSE (apparently its the way RSS sounds to native English speakers when pronounced by mainland Europeans)
It seems a good name to me as it can be an acronym for Atom / RSS /Emissions
and also has an analogy to the human body. Feeds enter through the mouth additional processing is done by the individual and then the resulting mashup is expelled through the arse.
I wonder if it will get into the next OED like Ben Hammersley’s word Podcasting!
