Day 3 of the RSS fast: today I only visited The WELL, MetaFilter, and Twitter for lunchtime information input. I spent the rest of the time reading Special Topics in Calamity Physics, which is nearing conclusion, after which I’ll continue reading Matter. (It’s dense, and I needed a bubblegum break.)
I did hop on to my Netvibes page, but avoided the tabs containing RSS feeds. However, I could see using that every day instead of an RSS reader; I like the interface, and it is a multipurpose start page. It made me want to revisit iGoogle … but not now, because I know there are RSS feeds on it.
So far, I’m not missing any feeds, and am particularly grateful for folks who use Twitterfeed. Forcing myself to visit communities for news encourages me to participate in discussions, instead of just siphoning bits and scampering off into the shadows.
