My last 3 weeks at both work and home seems to have had many conversations about subscribing to sites. Michelle Martin did a great post on the use of Google Reader and Alex Miller has been lured to Netvibes (not had time to investigate that yet).
While the dialogues of more advanced users about the use of RSS has been of value, I have been discussing the use of feeders at work with my baby boomer colleagues. Lessons in what to look for, setting up an account etc.
Tonight noticed something – maybe its obvious to everyone else but look…..
From what I can gather, this functionality is not available in IE – well version 6 at least. I am currently running Firefox 18.104.22.168 so guessing it is something associated with that.
In future, when explaining RSS, will make sure they have Firefox installed (which is most of my workplace anywsay) and use this method. Much easier. Even my troglodyte father could work this one out.
