Which tools and technologies build the Stack Exchange Network?

Does StackExchange use a tag-by-tag, XML-based feed of links to content for users, or is their system more complicated than that? I think their system for organizing and delivering their content is very cool.

Each site in the StackExchange network is backed by a SQL Server database. This database stores all of the information about the site, including the posts, the votes, the users, the moderator flags, and the tags.
