A “secret” site
devoted to selling you on the wonders of their new product makes
excellent use of a handful of chain letter tricks, graphic marketing
and referral tricks, and persuasive writing to sell you on… whatever
they have at hand.  In any circumstances, this would be something worth mentioning here.  In this case, the site is selling RSS Feeds as the next great way to get rich quick.

Feed marketing and a newly-selective breed of ad-selling should make
advertising much easier and cheaper to accomplish, diminishing one of
the parasitic sectors of the economy.
