Condensed News Answered

Hey

If anyone is interested, here's my shared items page from my RSS reader:
Link
Theres an RSS feed on that page too.

Before you go all "What's the point of this!?" on me -- let me explain.

I go through about 400 items a day. This is the condensed version. I share 2 things mostly: Things that are funny/ironic -- and things that are interesting. Its a pretty even mix. My feeds include:
Blogs:
Make, Lifehacker, Gizmondo, Engadget, Consumerist, Slashdot, WorseThanFailure
And:
Instructables & digg

Theres a few others, but they aren't good often. I'll gladly add any other feed that you want.

I've only been doing this for a few days -- I need to get used to hitting "share". Anything I view, I share. Theres some things that I really don't care about --but others might -- that I'll also share.

Hopefully, this can help some people shave time off their news-reading. Let me know if theres some other source I should read!

Surely the condensed news is ns?

That aside, I have never, ever used an "RSS feed". Ever. It sounds like something you pump into the production line of a pig-food factory.

Here are two really dumb questions:

  • What exactly is an RSS feed?
  • How do I work one?

Gosh. It's that easy?

Well, I now have an RSS reader account. Thankyou.

(BTW, I have "use of English" as my first law. This post full fills my third law)

Just a note:
Its hardly news... its more of just odd collections of things :P
I try to mark anything that seems like real news... but I don't care about politics enough... and good news is hard to come by :P
