Web 2.0 has changed the technological landscape of the Internet computing world today by supporting efficient methods for information sharing and social collaboration. Web 2.0 is much more than adding a nice facade to old web applications rather it is a new way of thinking about software architecture of RIAs which opens new possibilities for finding more effective answers to old problems such as data integration. In this paper a methodology for integration of distributed information based on semantically-enabled RSS (Really Simple Syndication) feeds will be presented. The proposed method can be used in multiple use-cases where service providers/end-users need ad-hoc exchange of their service information/requirements in order to find an optimized solution. As proof of concept an emergency management use-case cases is presented which shows how semantic web concepts can be embedded in RSS feeds to address the specific requirements of accident and emergency scenarios.
