How I Get the News

grl1One of the great things about being a 21st Century Man is that I get to choose how I keep in touch with the world and the things I’m interested in. I mainly do this by subscribing to RSS feeds from the websites that have the content I’m looking for, written by people and organizations I like and trust.

Since I have not yet found an off-line RSS reader for the iPhone, my current reader of choice is Google Reader. Since I have Internet access pretty much 24 hours a day, this isn’t a huge handicap.

This morning, just out of interest, I took a look at my list of subscriptions – I was a bit surprised by how many there are. I suppose this is a sign of an inquisitive mind and pretty broad interests.

So here they are, along with links to the feeds so you can check them out. Let me know if there is anything good I’m missing.

To help manage all these feed, I have them sorted in folders – News, Technology, Marketing, etc. It would be information overload otherwise :)

For me, using RSS feeds and a good reader application is the perfect way to keep up to date with my interests. If you are not using RSS, I’d really suggest you give it a try. Huge advantage? No annoying ads (yet)
