Google Burner?

I just read that Google is considering buying FeedBurner. At first it didn’t really surprise or worry me – but then I read this: With this deal, Google can integrate both AdWords and, soon, DoubleClick into FeedBurner’s feeds as well as create more sophisticated RSS search tools. I have just one thing to say – if Google does buy FeedBurner and does put ads on my feed I will switch  [ Read More ]

Back to Bloglines

Well, you can’t say I didn’t give it a real try – after sticking with Google Reader I just couldn’t get over the problems I was having – so I’m back at Bloglines with an updated (shareable) list of feeds. Basically I liked the reading interface and the fact that I couldn’t accidentally click on a folder and mark everything read – but that’s about it. I hate that I  [ Read More ]

Thoughts on Google Reader

So today I switched to Google Reader. My husband has been raving about it – and a bunch of librarian buddies were using it at CIL. Here are my first impressions. I can’t share my subscription list – just individual posts (unless someone tells me otherwise) I can’t widen the left column to see full titles and number of new posts (and I can’t scroll left to right either) sometimes  [ Read More ]

Are people writing less?

Is something up with Bloglines or are people writing less? I usually have hundreds of things to read (thousands if I do my homework like I should) – and yet I’ve been able to keep up lately. Also, all feeds are looking wierd and not very helpful at all. I might have to join a lot of you and check out Google Reader. Technorati Tags: bloglines, rss feeds

Also, from the RSStalker site: doesn’t advertise it, but they have a 30 day price drop policy. If you bought something from them and they lower the price within 30 days, just fill out  [ Read More ]

Just had to share this – it’s kinda funny. via: RSS Compendium & bLaugh

Christina quotes an email from Ulrich’s Web: The new “RSS Available” Advanced Search limiter makes it possible for users to identify the growing number of periodicals that are providing headlines, recent issues or other content via RSS (Really Simple Syndication). An RSS feed provides content via XML files that are then read by an RSS reader or web browser. CSA is adding RSS availability data to thousands of individual Ulrich's  [ Read More ]

Wanna Keep Up?

Thanks Steven for pointing me to Marshall Kirkpatrick’s post on keeping up. RSS feeds make it possible to consume far more information at a faster pace than would otherwise be possible for the human brain. That said, many people experience a new level of information overload once they begin reading feeds. Here’s an overview of how I read thousands of RSS feeds without breaking a sweat. Give it a read  [ Read More ]

LibWorm Announced

Yesterday, while I was working on my final projects, news of LibWorm spread throughout the biblioblogosphere. LibWorm is a “Librarianship RSS and Current Awareness Search” by MedWorm's Frankie Dolan and David Rothman. LibWorm let’s you search for library news across over 1000 RSS feed (including blogs, journal tables of contents and more). I need to poke more before I give my official opinion – but the one thing missing is  [ Read More ]
