I am both humbled and flattered but your words because I mainly rely on
RSS feeds for input. I suggest you find an RSS aggregator that suits you.
I am personally using RSSOwl, not necessarily because it is the best, but
because it is Open Source, interoperable and I am partially involved with
its development community.
I have just uploaded my full list of feeds for you. You will find some
news feeds therein, under the appropriate category:
A few days ago I installed a tool that enables me to tag links without re-
lying on third-parties:
It makes links easier to re-discover, but it's no alternative to occasion-
al Web searches, as well as Firefox bookmarks (could reach the above
through Live Bookmarks), browser History and previous writeups.
