Okay, enough of that.
Back in the day, I used to visit a bunch of websites regularly. This list of websites went through several revisions.
Version 0: Whatever I remembered. Unfortunately, I have a very porous memory.
Version 1: I kept a master list of “interesting stuff” in a HTML file in my homedir. This kinda worked, but would get out of sync between my different computers, and occasionally was lost when I accidentally deleted it or when a hard disk crashed.
Version 2: del.icio.us
. It was pretty good; I still use it for keeping up with webcomics
which don’t all have feeds.
Version 3: Akregator
, a news feed reader for KDE. It still had the problem of being out-of-sync between different machines and being lost in hard disk crashes.
Version 4: Google Reader
. Not only is it a wonderful interface I can access from anywhere, from almost any browser (not very compatible with Opera and Konqui, but works fine on my n810), but also it’s got better keyboard shortcuts than most desktop feed readers! Soon, Akregator synchronization with Google Reader
will make life even more awesome.
As a side-effect of moving to news feed readers, though, I’ve been dropping any blog or site which lacks public RSS/Atom feeds. Any former friend on Xanga/LJ who doesn’t have a public feed: dropped. Any news site which doesn’t have a public feed: dropped. Any … well, you get the point. Webcomics are an exception, because too many that I don’t want to give up quite yet are feedless.
! Write a RSS/Atom generator for your blog already!)
So what do I follow nowadays? Lots of math and CS blogs; development of Linux, KDE, Gnome, Haskell, Lisp, Perl, Ruby, etc., tech news like ars and Phoronix, and…
In the “cute” folder: Cute Overload
, I CAN HAS CHEEZBURGER?
, Let’s be friends
(hasn’t updated in a while), Meme Cats
(hasn’t updated in a while), Stuff On My Cat
, and The FAIL Blog
, which isn’t cute, but falls into the general category of image macro
s, and is horribly amusing.
