I tried rss for a while. Gave up. It was still a 'pull' process and I 
had to remember to do it, which I didn't. It also was a slow and 
interruptive process in my browser. Maybe I just didn't have it set 
properly. I've tried separate rss readers, but they too were 'out of 
sight, out of mind'. I use email as a standard every day tool, so 
having discussions come in there meant it was there with all my other 
dynamic interactions. I do go to published websites, but I don't 
'talk back' to them. Email enables me to keep a copy of sent 
materials as well as received much easier in a plain text form.

Our truest response to the irrationality of the world is to paint or 
sing or write, for only in such response do we find truth.
