-How is Bloglines being used outside of the United States?
Bloglines needs RSS based on XML. If we wants to use bloglines, we have to know about RSS that we wants to link. But in Korea, many blog services don't provide RSS(Only one blog service site provides RSS. There's no more site providing RSS even news sites.) So many Korean people don't use bloglines. Only professional computer users use it. But if more sites provide RSS and more people know about the usefulness of bloglines, more people use bloglines in Korea.
RSS(RDF Site Summary or Really Simple Syndication) is a format based on XML and is made for contents that frequently being updated. If site A(or user A) gets site B's RSS, then A can updates his site with B's RSS. And A can get information about B without connecting site B. RSS is similar to Bookmarks, but it's better than Bookmarks because it doesn't need connecting. But if someone wants to use RSS with RSS reader(like bloglines), he needs a site that provides RSS.
