I’ve been stuffing my Google Reader fat … no, I mean REALLY FAT! lol Ever since switching, I’ve subscribed to what seems like every feed under the sun. Ranging from open source softwares to *ahem* “opened” source sites, to cook books and recipes, to all of my fav LJ and MySpace monkeys (seriously, Virb will blow those away … someday! :)), to local news and football updates (Can you say ‘Roll Tide’?), to politics, to even web 2.0 theory forums, to just the general stuff: Adobe, Microsoft, Mozilla, WordPress, etc. You name it, I probably read it. LOL!
I’m not sure how, but I think it stems from getting the odd or out of the blue “Hey, do you know where I could find [whatever off the wall request] ?”
I swear, some people must think I’m omnipotent or something … someone IM’d me this morning wanting to know what video conferencing software I use. LOL! The last time I did anything like that, it was with with NetMeeting, and I was most likely still using Windows 95. *snickers* Look people, I don’t know shit … but I can look it up. :D
Did you know that Adobe has come out with a service that searches feeds? I didn’t until I started writing this and stopped to read a few new entries on one of my subscribed feeds. It’s called myFeedz. How cool is that?
Seriously, it’s really cool — or, at least I think so! Many sites are getting into providing more efficient ways of getting their content out there so you can read at your leisure without having to open a browser (unless it’s browser-based, obviously) to get the latest news, content, opinions, etc.
God, I love RSS. :)
