O'Reilly Radar: "'a new Neilson study ... reveals only 11% of blog readers use RSS and that a whooping 66% of blog readers don't even know what RSS is. These figures should be a bit sobering for VCs and the rest of Silicon Valley because not only do 100% of VCs seem to know what RSS is but it seems like 66% of them have already invested in an RSS/Blog related start-up. Some guys are even apparently trying to raise an RSS themed VC fund.

'Fact is, if you wander just a little bit outside of Geek-centric world of tech-related and VC-related blogs what you quickly discover is that RSS feeds are few and far between. Take political blogs for example. A couple of weeks ago I noticed that one of the political blogs I enjoy, which also happens to be in the top half of the Top 500 feeds, didn't appear to have an RSS feed. I contacted the author and asked him if he had an RSS feed and he asked me 'What's an RSS feed?'.' "
