A while back I wrote about my dream RSS feed reader. This plugin does nothing to get me there, but it’s kind of cool so I figured I should share it with you all (in case it gets you closer to your dream reader). This from Lifehacker: Google Reader is still one of the best ways to get through your mass of blogs, but it’s never been the prettiest way [ Read More ]

I’ve been hunting around for ages now and figure I should turn to my librarian friends (please no sales comments). I’m looking for my dream RSS Feed Reader. I use Android for my phone and tablet and Google for my email (both personal and work) so I want Google Reader to be this tool, but it’s just not. The tool can be web based or desktop based (I use Mac) [ Read More ]
I’ve been using RSS since before we had aggregators, since before we used it to keep up with blogs and other social sites. I was using RSS to syndicate content from other sites on to my own back in the day, and now this post from Ken Varnum points me to an article that is talking about the death of RSS. Adam Turner writes: RSS is one of the universal [ Read More ]
So, in getting started again with reading blogs and writing here I decided to go through my Google Reader account and clean things up. I’m actually very surprised that three years after my last Google Reader rant the same problems still exist. Hopefully I’m wrong and one of you can help me. I want to be able to share a list of blogs that I subscribe to. I find lists [ Read More ]
That’s right, I spent nearly all day catching up on blogs and I still have 4000 entries to read, so I had to do it …. As terrifying as it is that I missed something – it’s also a huge weight off my back.
I’ve read a few people complaining about Bloglines recently and it seems that people are moving to Google Reader. I have tried Google Reader several times – and have looked at it recently and it’s still not what I want to use. For me it still seems inferior to Bloglines – even if Bloglines is having errors. Personally I only had one blog not updating (or one that I noticed) [ Read More ]
I keep reading about the new Google Blog Search and how it’s supposed to be a Techmeme killer – but I don’t see why. I read Techmeme via RSS – and I don’t see any such option on the new Google Blog Search homepage for technology – where’s the RSS???
Okay, so part of my job is to keep up with news from libraries and seek speaking engagements on open source. The best way for me to do this is to subscribe to not only the big association feeds and mailing lists, but the state level associations. Which leads me to my rant! Why is it that so many library sites still don’t offer RSS updates?? And if you don’t [ Read More ]
I don’t mind down time once in a while – I’m only writing about this because it’s the friendliest error message I’ve ever seen. It looks like the people at Bloglines are throwing a party
Hi all! I’m looking for recommendations for the best RSS to Email tools out there. I still get people asking me how to get RSS updates via email so I want to offer them good suggestions and I haven’t played with any of these tools. Comments are open for suggestions.
