- Other ways?
- One of the comments on the talk was that the title was misleading.
I didn't really talk about "tools" (plural) but just about RSS. Well,
okay. I guess I was focused on the multiple ways to use RSS. Are things
like social networking tools (linkedin.com) really having an effect on
the general public?

- At the time of this talk, Pluck had an RSS reader and an excellent,
short description of RSS for the new user. They plan to discontinue their
reader in January, and refer folks to Google and Bloglines.
