Giles made a really good point that while we can try our best to explain the concept of RSS feeds to others, many may not “get” it.

His bullet points:
- You’re the curator
- You decide what’s interesting
- You have more control over what you read and how
- It’s a fast and efficient way of reading a lot of web
