Steal This RSS

Two years ago I suggested in my presentation to an online advocacy conference that e-mail was fundamentally broken and that we should be looking at alternative channels like RSS for a lot of our communications to constituents.

The reaction at the time could be politely described as "disbelief".

So when I saw this graffito on a copy of the agenda posted on the wall at GetActive Software’s 2006 user conference yesterday, it warmed my heart 🙂

Jason –
I was the speaker for that session! And…I was the one that edited the agendas to say RSS! Glad you noticed. Of course…I wrote a book about email recently so I’m prob not saying it’s broken, but my point is that it it is about message and relationships NOT the tool that gets it done.
