2007: Year of RSS?

According to a post on Read/Write Web, RSS feeds will go mainstream in 2007.

The Internet Explorer 7 browser, the Outlook 2007 e-mail software, Yahoo! Mail and Gmail will all have integrated RSS capabilities.

People will no longer have to configure or download an RSS reader or aggregator to subscribe to RSS and blog feeds. They will be able to incorporate and manage feeds directly in their e-mail program.

Advantage: an expansion of the population using RSS.

Added advantage: people will no longer look annoyed or flee in terror everytime we try to explain to them why they should be using RSS for current awareness purposes.

Disadvantage: we bloggers will no longer be able to boast about being the "cool techie kids" in our organizations.
