Evolve or die. I don't think asking someone to learn something as
simple as an RSS reader (you can even install it on their workstation
& subscribe for them, instead of asking them to do it themselves) is
too onerous a task. Or, as I suggested above, use email to publish the
updates instead of RSS.
