Will RSS Newsletters Replace E-mail Newsletters?

Not sure how RSS newsletters would work technically, but they might be a way around the spam problem for e-mail newsletter publishers, like me! e-Dialog’s Michael Wexler talks about it in this interview: “Instead of sending eight million emails, publishers would establish a feed and people would add the feed to their reader or desktop.”

I was also quoted in a story done by E-Zine Tips last week: “I am beginning to think that as newsreaders take off and become commonplace (will it ever? the answer depends on the integration of newsreaders with browsers–if that happens, then spam goes away, really!), RSS newsletters would take the place of email newsletters. Not sure how it will happen technically, but it is bound to happen.”
