People don’t get RSS

At least not the way they understand email. That’s why a service like Rmail (which was bought last month by NBC Universal) will be important, particularly until the browsers that incorporate RSS become ubiquitous.

Instead of requiring an RSS aggregator, this site lets people get feeds delivered straight to their email inboxes.

I tested this in my Blogger blog, because for some reason WordPress.com doesn’t let you paste in JavaScript routines. If you check out my sidebar in Blogger, it’s a really nice interface.

I like WordPress a lot, and I’ll bet that if I purchased the CSS customization I could get Rmail to work, but one of the ideas behind this blog is that everything you see here is free…just to emphasize how free and easy it is to use these new media and social media tools.
