this is VERY important. for the past little while, i've been wracking my brain how to help people subscribe to my blog. never mind RSS. "so what's a blog again?" "how come you don't email me your blogs?" "what do you mean, 'subscribe' to the blog?" "you've got a great blog!" (when they go to my static web site) "i love your blog!" (when they read my electronic newsletter) "you've never told me where your blog is!" (when it's in the signature of each and every email i send) that's only a few of the comments. then these poor people are supposed to know that they can do this weird "subscribing" stuff by going to a jungle of icons somewhere at the bottom of the page of the blog (if they ever get there)? yes, clearly, there's a lot of education that needs to happen, and WE need to do the educating. thanks for bringing this up!

I agree that the benefit of RSS still eludes most people. However, I think the biggest obstacle is integration with existing software. Once browsers, e-mail readers, and even operating systems provide the necessary and seamless hooks, RSS feed use will likely take off. At the moment, all we have are tips on what icon to use and a couple of best practices on keeping the number of clicks to a minimum. But these things still need every RSS publisher to explain what RSS is and that's where I believe we lose most people.
