Since Monday is rarely a good workday — it tends to get broken up by admin and emails and bits and pieces, so I don’t get the space for a good long train of thought — I’m spending a couple of hours tuning my RSS feed capture.
My RSS reading comes in three flavours. I have a desktop app, Feed Demon, that brings things to me in close to realtime. Feed Demon got subsumed into Google Reader, so, when I don’t want realtime, I can bring that up in a browser. And I have an app called Reeder for the goddamned iPhone, which is a glorious thing so long as I’m in a civilised part of the world and therefore have 3G.
I currently have 119 feeds in my capture. Today I’ll be weeding some of those out — some of the music blogs got killed by Blogger, some other sites I follow have wandered off into the tall grass or otherwise grown less interesting to me.
I am hunting the New. It’s all out there. You’ve just got to find it.
