@abscond I can see it must be nice to know who you're writing for. But I'd say that's still data :)
@beekernortham I'm sure. And more like sending it *to*people* rather than letting it float into the void.
@morningporch I was surprised that a lot of people seemed to just stop using them when Google Reader closed.
@morningporch Yes - but an addictive one I expect, for newsletter writers.
@morningporch Yes. And, I realise it's different for everyone, but feed readers are where I go to read… email is full of stuff to do.
@D_Nye_Griffiths Or "I'll leave this lying here in case anyone happens to want to glance at it, but it doesn't really matter" media.
I think I just find RSS much more polite and diffident. Not pushy. Take it or leave it. Understatedly British, if you will.
But I realise that is probably one of the attractions for the writers of email newsletters. They turn everyone into data-hungry marketers.
As a reader I find email newsletters uncomfortable - I know the owner can see when I subscribe or unsubscribe. I like the anonymity of RSS.
