Using RSS versus getting things in Email. What do you prefer?

Opting out
of opting in. 

Vestigial email and alerts accumulating in a well organized
but completely ignored inbox hierarchy?

Time to walk-the-walk with some housecleaning, and put the
slow-to-adopt on notice. Things are reaching critical mass. Time to evolve or
move on down the road.

Email is still a killer app., especially for personal and business communication, but
inboxes clogged with ancient opt-ins being redirected to the trash doesn’t do
anything to improve the situation.  

This is a very democratic process. By opting out, you are
voting on content you will receive, and sending a message to the content
provider that (if they’re paying attention) they are losing market share
delivering content this way.

The
Bottom Line: If it’s not in the feed reader, who has time for it?
