Getting Your Daily Tech News Fix

Tuesday, January 23rd, 2007

I was checking out Digg this morning and noticed this story over at Valleywag:

How To Get all the tech news you need (in 20 minutes a day)

A quick look told me there’s a better way, so here it is. The article suggests a number of news sources that you should scan on a daily basis to ensure you’re getting a good coverage of what’s going on. Checking multiple sites takes way too long, so why not blend those news sources into a single feed and then subscribe to it in your newsreader, or even view it online?

  1. DailyTech: Top Sources
  2. DailyTech: Commentary
  3. DailyTech: Mainstream
  4. DailyTech: Mainstays

The only news source I couldn’t include in there was Wired Magazine in “Mainstays”, but that’s much sexier to read in old-school hardcopy anyway, so go subscribe to it and read it on your commute or something.

These blends will all be upgraded with the new beta version of FeedBlendr soon, and then you’ll be able to access the contents of them online, on your cell-phone, wherever you want; care of some of the cool new features about to be released.

Tracking Groups Attention Data

Steve Rubel has a great post over on MicroPersuasion on using FeedBlendr to track a group’s attention data. If you work with a group of RSS-ophiles (or just are one yourself), then you should check out his technique combining FeedBlendr and FeedBurner.
