This presentation by Steve Cohen, RSS enthusiast, gave me a major case of informaton overload. Fortunately, links to all the tools he discussed are available on his wiki. I was especially impressed by two things Steve said:
- "RSS is neither simple nor syndicated".
- "The reference interview doesn’t end when the requester walks out the door. It ends when his/her project is done. So keep feeding them information as long as they need it."
Steve let us in on his RSS tricks. He is especially well qualified to speak on this subject because he has hundreds of feeds and reads (at least opens) thousands of items a day. He very much likes Google Reader, which provides lots of data on his feeds and said, "Google Reader makes me smarter". Here is a snapshot of Steve’s Google Reader data page.
