There are plenty of people who will tell you that RSS is King and that email is dead. They claim that the future is in XML delivery only (don’t get me wrong, I’m a big fan) and that those who collect emails as part of their strategy are old dinosaurs who don’t know anything about “business today.”
They have huge names and get a lot of press.
Here’s my question.
Best I can tell, remember, figure out, etc., is that all of the “email is dead” crowd types either have a day job that pays the bills or are living off some previously intelligent decision (investments, company, etc.).
I’m sure there is someone out there who believes that email is dead / RSS is our only future and is making a living accordingly?
I just can’t think of one.
