Some time ago I remember what a struggle it was to keep up to date with my favorite websites over the net. Basically I would run through my bookmark and check each one individually. The process was time-consuming and inefficient, to say the least. Then one year ago I discovered RSS, and things changed, for the better.
Now, if you are not familiar with RSS (and you should!) here is a simple yet effective definition from XML.com:
“RSS is a format for syndicating news and the content of news-like sites, including major news sites like Wired, news-oriented community sites like Slashdot, and personal weblogs. But it’s not just for news. Pretty much anything that can be broken down into discrete items can be syndicated via RSS: the “recent changes” page of a wiki, a changelog of CVS checkins, even the revision history of a book. Once information about each item is in RSS format, an RSS-aware program can check the feed for changes and react to the changes in an appropriate way.
RSS-aware programs called news aggregators are popular in the weblogging community. Many weblogs make content available in RSS. A news aggregator can help you keep up with all your favorite weblogs by checking their RSS feeds and displaying new items from each of them”.
Currently I am subscribed to 108 feeds, and the list is growing every week. Below you find all those sites, subdivided into categories. Have fun.
