rss also is for "news" ie get news delivered right to your desktop.
(akin to a news channel). Does he not email out "news" concerning
recent/new epic road trips?
A Google search of "rss versus email":
I've used some of what are called rss client / rss reader on Linux (they
have 'em for Windows too) that behave very much akin to a powerful email
program or application. These can filter into other folder and kept in
article base (just like mail base, news base, or whatever you want to
call it). These be full blown, state of the art, rss client / rss reader
As far as I can see, rss never caught on -- like as in why should
Windows users buy an rss reader (many, perhaps most, won't) -- like as
in people resist change. Linux has some nice full blown and free and
very powerful rss reader. But my guess be not enough people using Linux
though I use it.
The next quote copy/pasted from near the bottom of the article at above url
<quote>Keep either Email or RSS out of your marketing toolbox and you're
losing out on a significant portion of your audience.
RSS has other advantages that email does not have - like being able to
syndicate your content across the web. It can be a very useful tool for
building link popularity - if you do it right.
As a marketer you do need to start brushing up on your knowledge of RSS
and a good place to start is here:</quote>
