One of the eye-opening things that came out of our user-testing session yesterday was that a lot of people don’t know what RSS is (here’s Wikipedia’s explanation of RSS). It’s easy for our team to run off and get excited about Twitter, RSS, Delicious, etc, but we have to remember that it’s likely that the majority of our users haven’t even heard of these services, let alone use them.

But people have heard of email, right? To that end we’re making an email subscription to this blog available, and a get-all-subscription to all our RSS content. With more to follow when we have time. We were prompted to do this work when a member of the public emailed us, so hopefully this proves that we’re listening to our users!
