  Ask your Mom about the Internet

Greg Linden points to this entertaining post wherein a blogger's Mom is asked: "What's RSS?"

Here is the Mom's answer:

Well, my first response is that I just don’t have a clue. In today’s world it could be a disease…as in “I have RSS and nobody believes that it’s a real illness; but I just don’t have any energy”. It could be someone’s initials. I don’t know!!

So I googled it and I still just don’t have a clue. I didn’t understand the first paragraph, got totally bored because there are words in there that mean nothing to anyone who hasn’t heard of RSS.

The answer to your question: I just don’t have a clue!

It's funny because it's true! And it's a bit of a wake-up call for the Web2.0 type internet - most people can't use the basic stuff yet.
