RSS is the new M3U

With the advent of sites like The Hype Machine, del.icio.us tags like for:joshua and RSS feeds on torrent sites I think it is time to get rid of the M3U and other playlist formats in favor of RSS. It would take so little effort to take existing media players and add RSS playlist support to them. I’m imagining a world where everyone stores their playlists in RSS and shares them so people end up listening to music by aggregating the playlists of others and listening to cool music as people discover it. This looks like the direction we’re headed, let’s move there faster.
