Over at Bloggertalks there is an interview with Darren Rowse, the long time webmaster of Problogger and other blogs. Darren is a full time blogger so his opinions are much respected.
In the interview Darren is asked about RSS which I found strange as no one ever asks about RSS in interviews, not even when the interview is tech orientated. Two questions are asked and both have been pertinent to RSS since its inception.
First and foremost is whether full RSS feeds or excerpts of content should be published. Darren answers that he does both stating that republishing without acknowledgement or consent is his biggest worry.
The second big question is the problem of educating less techie readers about RSS so they understand that they can subscribe to the news feed to get the content. Darren tries to solve this problem by talking about RSS in his blog posts.
